Filmmaker Mimi Chakarova’s documentary “The Price of Sex” premieres today (April 11) on the Documentary Channel. Chakarova, who grew up in Bulgaria, has spent the past seven years working on the documentary, photographing and interviewing women who were sold into sex work in eastern and western Europe. Chakarova even went so far as to allow a pimp to price her for prostitution. The documentary poses questions about human trafficking, and attempts to provide answers to human trafficking’s success and what is standing in the way of our attempt to end the practice. All of the stories are heartbreaking. A short article on her documentary can be found here: http://thecnnfreedomproject.blogs.cnn.com/2012/03/23/undercover-filmmaker-trafficker-priced-me-up/ and her website is http://priceofsex.org.
