The Film: The Price of Sex
Facebook Event: here
The Irish Feminist Network and the Immigrant Council of Ireland invite you to the Irish premiere of the award-winning movie 'The Price of Sex', to be followed by a post-screening panel discussion on sex trafficking.
'The Price of Sex' is a feature-length documentary about young Eastern European women who've been drawn into a netherworld of sex trafficking and abuse. Intimate, harrowing and revealing, it is a story told by the young women who were supposed to be silenced by shame, fear and violence. Photojournalist Mimi Chakarova, who grew up in Bulgaria, takes us on a personal investigative journey, exposing the shadowy world of sex trafficking from Eastern Europe to the Middle East and Western Europe. Filming undercover and gaining extraordinary access, Chakarova illuminates how even though some women escape to tell their stories, sex trafficking thrives.
Film screening will be followed by a discussion with the following panelists:
Paul Maguire, reporter of the recent Prime Time programme 'Profiting from Prostitution'
Linda Latham, Co-ordinator of the Women's Health Project, HSE
Denise Charlton, CEO of the Immigrant Council of Ireland
Una Mullaly, journalist and broadcaster
Chair: Keelin Shanley, reporter/presenter with Prime Time and the Consumer Show
