The Elmore B&S Ball (2013)
22min · Documentary, Short · 19 August 2013
B&S Ball refers to a dance held in rural Australia for single young adults who can sometimes live up to a day's drive from their nearest neighbor. The "B&S" stands for "bachelors and spinsters" and the balls are notoriously drunken and raucous. Most of us take contact with the opposite sex for granted, but for these people, it's not always so easy. VICE drove up to the B&S ball in Elmore, Victoria. Their guides were Ashlie, a shy young country girl hoping to win her second consecutive wet t-shirt competition without the aid of alcohol; and Glenn, an abattoir worker looking for love.
