Screening July 11, 2011 7:00 PM

The Price of Sex gives an unparalleled view of sex trafficking, as photojournalist Mimi Chakarova goes deep undercover to explore the lives of Eastern European women who are sold as sex slaves in Western Europe and the Middle East.

The women tell their stories of forced prostitution, violence and poverty to Chakarova who exposes the ever-expanding and thriving market for sex trafficking in prosperous nations.

Powerful and evocative, the Price of Sex was reported and filmed over the course of eight years and offers a rare platform for victims of sex trafficking to describe the horrors of an industry that goes virtually unchecked.
