“More than just a portrait of torment, Surviving Sex Trafficking is a study of healing.”
SURVIVAL IS STEP ONE.
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: The Movement to End Sex 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.
“This film brings to the table some of the ordeals the victims endure during their captivity – but captures the souls of all the brave survivors who are doing their best to reclaim themselves. You won’t be the same after watching the film. You just can’t.”
Stopping Traffic is a 501c3 non-profit organization with a mission to help eradicate modern-day slavery by raising awareness about trafficking through campaigns and documentary films to support and empower sex-trafficking survivors, and partner with qualified non-profits to unify the movement against human trafficking.
The success and impact Stopping Traffic: The Movement to End Sex Trafficking (2017) lead to the establishing of Stopping Traffic as a non-profit.
Co-founded by Acharya Shree Yogeesh, Sadhvi Siddhali Shree & Sadhvi Anubhuti.
100% of proceeds from the film will directly help survivors and shelters.
