This film is turning hearts and minds to the issue of minor sex-trafficking in the United States
Last week, “The Long Night,” our first Women’s Initiative Project, launched to the public. This documentary film by Tim Matsui and MediaStorm tells the story of two teenagers, Natalie and Lisa, trafficked as young teenagers and trapped in the life of commercial sex exploitation, and those around them struggling to help them leave the life of exploitation and prostitution.
Today, the stories of Lisa and Natalie are resounding through the United States. The project has been featured by The New York Times, MSNBC, The Seattle Times, Time Magazine, The Huffington Post and many others. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer describes the film as “raw and thoughtful.” The Huffington Post tells its readers, “you need to see this film about sex work and addiction.”
This film is turning hearts and minds to the issue of minor sex-trafficking in the United States. It is spurring a dialogue among stakeholders across the country and driving a conversation that will lead to better resources and treatment for those impacted by this terrible issue. “The Long Night,” our first Women’s Initiative Project is driving change.
