Film is a powerful storytelling medium.
We’ve seen it used before as a way to communicate the complicated and often overwhelming sad story of sex trafficking.
Inspired by actual events, this new film—8DAYS—paints the grim reality of sex trafficking in the United States. Trafficking isn’t just “that thing” that happens in only developing countries.
It’s a worldwide epidemic that takes on many different forms and 8DAYs captures the harsh realities of some of the sex trafficking that goes on within the United States.
