  • Nefarious: Merchant of Souls

    A hard-hitting documentary that exposes the disturbing trends in modern sex slavery. From the very first scene, Nefarious ushers you into the nightmare of sex slavery that hundreds of thousands experience daily. You'll see where slaves are sold (often in developed, affluent countries), where they work, and where they are confined. You'll hear first-hand interviews with real victims and traffickers, along with expert analysis from international humanitarian leaders.
  • Playground

    The sexual exploitation of children is a problem that we tend to relegate to back-alley brothels in developing countries, the province of a particularly inhuman, and invariably foreign, criminal element. Such is the initial premise of Libby Spears' sensitive investigation into the topic. But she quickly concludes that very little thrives on this planet without American capital, and the commercial child sex industry is certainly thriving. Spears intelligently traces the epidemic to its disparate, and decidedly domestic, roots - among them the way children are educated about sex, and the prob- lem of raising awareness about a crime that inherently cannot be shown.
  • Rape-For-Profit

    This feature-length documentary from Mew Films is the product of hundreds of hours of ridealong footage with Sea-Tac street crimes unit and the Seattle high-risk victims unit, including undercover sting operations and interviews with some of Seattle's leading politicians and leaders. This powerful film hopes to shed light on this growing problem and uncover the solution to the atrocities happening to Seattle's daughters, nieces, and friends. Rape For Profit partners with local law enforcement, teen shelters, and non-profit organizations to help educate the city of Seattle on what is going on right in front of them.
  • Call + Response

    A first of its kind feature documentary film that reveals the world's 27 million dirtiest secrets: there are more slaves today than ever before in human history. CALL+RESPONSE goes deep undercover where slavery is thriving from the child brothels of Cambodia to the slave brick kilns of rural India to reveal that in 2009, Slave Traders made more money than Google, Nike and Starbucks combined.
  • Chosen

    Chosen is a comprehensive video resource package that reveals the warning signs and sometimes fatal consequences of sex trafficking to middle and high school students. The 20-minute video is designed to equip preteens and teens to protect themselves and others from being trapped in the horrific and violent sex industry.
