Here the current project we are working on:
One by one, countries around the world are asking the question, “should we legalize prostitution?” It has developed into a heated debate that rages like wildfire, leaving abolitionists frustrated, the public confused, and the sex industry on guard. Unfortunately, victims of sex trafficking are the ones falling through the cracks, and pimps and traffickers are taking full advantage of demand for paid sex. Does legalization of prostitution actually work to make our society a better and safer place for women, or are there there other alternatives that need to be explored? What can we do to prevent sexual exploitation from happening in the first place?
Hope for the Sold is embarking on a journey to find out. Our goal is to make a film about legalization of prostitution, its implications, and what we as a society need to do to to put an end to sex trafficking and exploitation. We believe that there are actions that can be taken on a systemic level that can prevent sex trafficking from happening in the first place. And we think that a film is an effective way to provoke thought and action that will lead to change.
Many of you have been asking over the last two years what you can do. Here is your chance! We begin filming on October 15, 2012 and need your help with the last bit of funding!
