So difficult, so necessary
Just viewed this film at the 18th Sonoma International Film Festival where it won the Audience Award for Best Feature Film. It is a terribly difficult film to watch as the subject matter — the forced prostitution of a very young Nepali girl into a brothel in Calcutta, India — is excruciating. But the film is made with love — the young girl shares humanity with others caught in these circumstances, befriends a little boy who is a child of one of the other prostitutes, is protected by another captive i.e. the human experience in all its squalor and splendor. Seeing the film in a festival environment was a great gift as the Q&A with some of the principals following the presentation made clear that this is not just a third world problem: we have this same problem right here in our own back yard. A friend has already begun a circle of women here in Sonoma to reach out to young women who are being used as slave prostitutes in our supposedly sublime county. The power of film to change lives! Bravo!
SOLD on a Mission
Seeing sex trafficking through the eyes of a once innocent girl can mobilize people and nations to stop it – that’s the belief that drives this astonishing movie deep into your heart. Along the way, it slays myths: that girls and women face these dangers willingly and deserve only shame; that trading money for sex is no crime, and that the damage of sexual slavery can ever be undone. Anyone who has witnessed this searing movie will know better.
When we first meet 13-year-old Lakshmi, a bright, spirited, shyly beautiful Nepalese girl growing up in a remote mountain village, she seems far from danger. Loved by a mother who knows only self-sacrifice, Lakshmi seems destined for more. She’s in school, works hard, but likes what young girls like – her kite, toe rings, sweet cakes, music, and dancing.
We see trouble, too – her stepfather drinks and gambles; her mother’s prayers are no match for his addictions. We know that other village families have tin roofs, and that Lakshmi’s family needs one. So begins a tale with no end.
Be brave and watch this movie. Pass it on by helping to fund SOLD’s distribution. Be bolder still and help end the cycle – one life, one law, one nation at a time.
