"Searching Siberia" Documentary follows IMG scouts in Russia
Has anyone else seen this movie? The movie follows IMG scouts as they try to discover new faces along the trans-siberian railroad. they discovered tanya D exactly the same way in previous years. she is seen towards the end of the movie.

the movie ends with the newly discovered girls on the cover of Jalouse.

you can watch the movie for free legally here:
http://www.snagfilms.com/films/title/searching_siberia/

or with dutch subtitles here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r66O1n2ZCuw




synopsis from IMG:
Jeni and David are model scouts for IMG Models Paris. Each year they take
the Trans-Siberian Railway across Russia searching for the next generation of
supermodels. As they travel across the country they stop at the remote cities
en route… Omsk, Novosibirsk, Nizny Novgorod… ending in St. Petersburg.
At each city they hold castings where hundreds of hopeful local girls line up
- desperate to be selected.
We follow Jeni and David discovering what makes this trip so essential. Why
do they believe they'll find the best contenders for the next supermodel
here in remote Russia? Why do some faces make the grade and others not?
And once chosen, how do their lives change? For the answer to that question
we'll visit the homes of those hoping to be chosen, and talk to the families
of those already a 'name' on the fashion circuit. And we'll see a group of girls
make the transformation - from deepest Siberia to the cover of major
fashion magazines. (IMGprogramming.com)

Yeah, I have heard about this a while ago (when I was watching The Model Scouts).
What a luck I'm going to the USA soon, I haven't managed to find any good proxy yet (and I want to see the original).
It's sounds so interesting. Thanks!

are you blocked from watching on youtube? the film is 99.9% in english so you might have luck watching the one with the dutch subtitles.

The first video is not available in my region. The second video is dubbed in Dutch and subtitled in Dutch, I only understand the IMG agents, which most be the most important part!, it's only half an hour, right?. Anyway, I just watched it, for some reason I thought the search for these girls was less formal or planned, it's amazing to see the journeys they embark on and the vision they must have in order to see a gem among all the faces and despite her current state (bad teeth/age/underdevelopment/etc).

Thanks for sharing it, Lucy.

I remember a couple of years ago, I was desperate to watch this documentary, it was only available on a weird website, and the video didn´t load, finally I got the parts where Tanya is featured, and then I got the full documentary, thanks to a TFSser. You could tell she was and is something special, tailor made for the runway.
