GRITtv: Got Docs: The Price of Sex
The job of the journalist is not to give people a voice, filmmaker Miki Chakarova explains to her students: “People have a voice,” she says, “It’s just that they don’t have an outlet.” In her recent film, The Price of Sex, Chakarova went to great lengths to provide that outlet by embedding herself in the world of Eastern European sex trafficking. The resulting film is an intimate portrait of the individuals that comprise an industry, and the way that corruption thrives in the context of poverty.
The film is playing around the country at select venues and will have its NYC premiere this summer at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival. Distributed by Tubemogul.
