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.

**If A Tree Falls: A Story Of The Earth Liberation Front: Director Marshall Curry got motivated after his wife's domestic violence office was raided by the FBI, and a member of her staff dragged away on charges of eco-terrorism. We take this conversation about If A Tree Falls to the next level of the forest for the trees, as Curry tracks the rise and fall of the underground ELF; the plight of Black Bloc to cell block ELF fugitive Daniel McGowan who faced hundreds of years of jail time; what life is like for him in lockdown at one of two existing maximum security domestic terrorism prisons in this country; and what exactly is or is not a terrorist.
