Searching Siberia...for Eyebrows?

We saw a one-hour long documentary recently, called Searching Siberia. This pair of American modeling talent scouts ride the Trans-Siberian Railway every year and visit five Russian cities, where they do casting calls for young teenage girls who want to be "discovered" and become fashion models.

A few of the girls actually make it, although obviously the majority are doomed to a life of living in a Soviet-era apartment block on the tundra.

Although it's not a well-made film, we enjoyed Searching Siberia for a couple of reasons. For one thing, every time the scouts arrive in a new city, there is a ballroom filled with dozens of skinny, bikini-clad teenagers waiting for them. That doesn't get old. Second, though, in the same way that there are a few hidden modeling gems in those crowds of girls, there are a handful of awesome eyebrows waiting to be unleashed.

Here are some screenshots:

And here's a two minute + trailer for the film:
