"Modern slavery." It sounds like a paradox. Hasn’t humanity progressed? Didn’t we leave slavery dead on the battlefields of the American Civil War? Didn’t social reformers like Lincoln and Wilberforce legislate against such cruelty over a hundred years ago? So we had thought. But, with over 27 million enslaved people in the world, human trafficking is once again the battlefront of the century.
Filmmaker Benjamin Nolot initially set out for a peek at the human trafficking industry. Four years later, his peek has turned into a journey of discovery which yielded over 800 hours of footage and a panoramic view of the closeted, heinous underworld of human trafficking. Nefarious: Merchant of Souls travels across four continents, through 19 countries and into dingy Cambodian karaoke bars, Amsterdam's infamous red-light district, Moldovan orphanages, legal Nevada brothels and the street corners and alleyways of metropolises worldwide for an in-depth look at the fastest-growing organized crime industry in the world.
This hard-hitting documentary exposes the disturbing trends in modern sex slavery. From the very first scene, Nefarious ushers you into the nightmare of sex slavery that hundreds of thousands experience daily. You’ll see where slaves are sold (often in developed, affluent countries), where they work and where they are confined. You’ll hear first-hand interviews with real victims and traffickers, along with expert analysis from international humanitarian leaders.
From initial recruitment to victim liberation - and everything in between - Nefarious uncovers the previously veiled underworld of sex slavery.
