Tackling Human Trafficking

Blog, Documentaries, Featured
I always knew I wanted to produce a documentary.  I never dreamed we’d delve into such a dark, torturious, sadistic world.  The conversation began with a friend of mine who works in law enforcement.   As we talked about our careers, the good, the bad and the ugly, I shared with him my plans to do a documentary.  He asked if I’d ever considered exploring the issue of human trafficking.

It's human sex trafficking. You'd be forgiven if you think that it only happens in bigger cities, not here in the Midwest. The United States is a source and transit country, and is also considered one of the top destination points for victims of child trafficking and exploitation. Cases of human trafficking have been reported in all 50 U.S. States; and with Interstate 80 as one of main routes from east to west, human trafficking is alive and well in the Midwest, including Iowa and Illinois. According to a Vanity Fair story,…
