The Real Sex TrafficThe Real Sex Traffic
This gripping documentary exposé goes inside the global sex trade in women from the former Soviet Bloc, and tells the remarkable story of “Viorel”, a Ukrainian man on a mission to find his pregnant wife, Katia, who has been trafficked to Turkey. Hidden cameras follow Viorel as he searches for the pimp who “owns” Katia, so he can buy her back. Filmmaker Ric Esther Bienstock interviews traffickers, cops and victims as she takes us deeper into the world of modern sex slavery. Part cinema verité, part investigation, the film puts a human face on this most compelling of contemporary issues. (VIEW CLIP) Director: Ric Esther Bienstock. 00 hr: 48 min: 38 sec
