The Price of Sex
Mimi Chakarova / USA / 2011 / 73 min.

According to UN estimates, each year around 1.5 million women are taken abroad to serve as sex slaves. After the fall of Communism, Mimi Chakarova, who directed The Price of Sex, left with her mother in search of a better life in the U.S. She explores the fate of less fortunate East European women from her generation who, in their desire to make money, ended up as prostitutes in foreign brothels. The film is the result of the director’s nine-year effort to infiltrate a world where women are sold solely for the purpose of providing sexual services. Why are Eastern European women targeted by pimps? A hidden camera penetrates the closed environment of Turkish night clubs to find out why the big business of forced prostitution continues uninterrupted even though national governments and the UN have spent millions to stop this widespread form of modern slavery. The film won the award presented by the Human Rights Watch Film Festival in New York.
