"Trade of Innocents" (2012) - Hollywood Takes a Closer Look at Sex Trafficking

Human trafficking, sex trafficking - these issues are omnipresent in the modern world. They normally do not garner as much media coverage as they deserve, but it seems Hollywood has finally caught up, with the new film, "Trade of Innocents", coming to theaters this fall.

 

This powerful film won the "Best of the Fest" award at the Breckenridge Festival of Film, as well as the "Best Picture" from International Christian Visual Media (ICVM). Here is what Mira Sorvino, an actress playing one of the main characters, has to say about it:

"I am very proud to be a part of this film; as actress and UNODC Goodwill Ambassador to combat human trafficking. Most people are unaware that this terrible trade of children for sexual exploitation flourishes both in the US and around the globe; "Trade of Innocents" will open their eyes and their hearts, and inspire them to become part of the solution."
And she was not the only one eager to share their opinion about modern day slavery - US President Barack Obama had much to say about the issue as well. Here is a short interview from CNN, where Erin Burnett and Mira Sorvino speak about this problem in a little more depth:


Are you not convinced yet? Have a look at this exclusive, behind the scenes, look at the set of "Trade of Innocents".

I hope you will take the time to watch this incredible film when you get the time.

In theaters October 5, 2012.

Can't wait to see it! The truth is that although we live in the era of information, the information that gets through to us is manipulated to such a level that it is now hard to see the things that really matter.
