Hotel Coolgardie and the problem with sending barmaids to remote mining towns

Hotel Coolgardie, a documentary (shot in 2012) that’s been compared to 1971’s nightmare thriller Wake In Fright, follows two young Finnish backpackers, Lina and Stephie, as they’re plonked in the middle of the desert by a company that recruits women like them to engage in temporary bar work servicing towns that don’t attract many long-term residents (and certainly not many – if any – young women).
