About the Film
With 45 million sex trafficking victims worldwide, only 1% manage to escape or be rescued. SURVIVING SEX TRAFFICKING examines the ongoing struggles of those survivors as they desperately fight to break free of their past, heal their bodies and minds, reconnect with a world of hope, and reclaim their lost humanity.
Jain monk Sadhvi Siddhali Shree, the filmmaker behind the award-winning documentary STOPPING TRAFFIC uncovers the depth of pain felt by survivors as well as if and how they can truly recover. Through conversations with victims and trips to women’s shelters around the world, SURVIVING SEX TRAFFICKING reveals their stories and how they escaped, how they continue to survive, and how they live day to day with the repressed trauma from the horrific events they experienced.
Shree directed and produced the film, with Sadhvi Anubhuti co-producing. Executive producers include Alyssa Milano, Jeannie Mai and Jeezy.
