The Price of Sex

Directed by Mimi Chakarova
United States, United Arab Emirates, 2011


A documentary about young Eastern European women who’ve been drawn into a netherworld of sex trafficking and abuse. It is a story told by survivors; a film that gives a voice to women who were supposed to be silenced by shame, fear and intimidation.

  • El Biffo's rating of the film The Price of Sex

    Around the world, vulnerable women are being held prisoner and forced into prostitution. Their passports are taken away by the traffickers and they are told if they try to run away, they will be killed and no one will care. Which is probably true. Police are either inadequate, or plainly corrupt and complicit. This happens all over, not just in Istanbul or Moldova or Dubai, but in Europe and America, too.
