Marième wants to have a white smile, so she gets her gums tattooed. This makes her teeth look whiter. Needles inject black substance into her gums. Not painlessly, but Marième knows that beauty comes at a price.

vpro Metropolis was a video project by Dutch broadcast organisation vpro, that ran from 2008 to 2015. Metropolis is made by a global collective of young filmmakers and TV producers, reporting on remarkable stories from their own country/city. We made a trip around the globe on one single issue: from local beauty ideals to Elvis impersonators, to what's it like being gay, or an outcast or a dog in different cultures.
