Arts Express: Eco-Terrorists, Sex Slaves, And What's Up At The HRW Festival

The Price Of Sex: Investigative filmmaker Mimi Chakarova takes it personally. And goes undercover as a sex slave to explore what happened to all those disappeared post-Soviet young women forced into the global sex trade and why, as she enters 'the mouth of the wolf.'

And Chakarova explores the illusory phenomenon of the good john vs. bad john; trafficking that is as much about class as sex with their consumerist human commodification under capitalism; the camera as evidence of her existence; and why she could not have *not* made this movie.
