NSFW. "Hard Sell" is a short film that parallels an actor's audition and a stripper's dance. Through the juxtaposed images of an acrobatic pole dance and an audition for a science fiction movie about cloning, the separate depictions are united by the music of gypsy queen Esma Redzepova to tell the story of the raw, heartbreaking, and often comical nature of being a performer. Music by Esma Redzepova and Thunderheist with permission.
