    Jacob's Story is a mini-documentary about a man that once made his living by trafficking women & children for the purposes of commercial sex. Jacob worked as a trafficker for a crime syndicate in Johannesburg South Africa. We decided to release his story because of how raw it is. In this film, he speaks openly about his work as a brothel manager and he explains how syndicates all over the world operate as they exploit the weak and powerless. Most importantly, you'll hear about the life transformation that's taken place in Jacob's life. From trafficker to rescuer. Only in the Kingdom of God. Jacob is living proof that when the Gospel changes the hearts of men; everything changes.

    • THE VILLAGE OF STOLEN KIDNEYS - [Editor's cut]


      from Alanedit / Added

      In the village of Hokshe, Nepal, local residents estimate that nearly 70 people, out of roughly 300, have sold their kidneys on the black market. Lured to India by the promise of cash, villagers are tricked into thinking their kidneys will regrow “like a mango in a tree.” Years later the money is gone, and so is their means of survival.

        This is the story of David Kainee, a man who is using his talents and passions to fight poverty and human trafficking in Nepal. It has been nearly a century since slavery was abolished in Nepal, but less than one decade since debt-bondage slavery was revoked. Abolitionists everywhere cheered when Nepali slave-owners were forced to free their servants. That is until they realized the slaves had nowhere to go. Because of this, the Kailali area, settled in southwest Nepal and known for its bonded labor practices, is at high risk for human trafficking. Many villages in the Kailali area are impoverished with dangerously few jobs and limited educational opportunities, especially for girls. Just three decades ago, the elders of Bhageshwor Tole migrated from the mountains to the Kailali district in hopes of escaping severe oppression. With no money, no job opportunities, and a social caste system that considers these individuals (Dalits, otherwise known as The Untouchables) to be worthless, they cleared out a space in the forest in hopes of building a better tomorrow.

            This is the latest film Stephen Vidano produced/directed for iEmpathize. The content is disturbing and not for young eyes and ears. The stories presented in this movie are sobering, to say the least. Human trafficking and the sex trade is alive and well. And it's not just "over there." It's serious business, with an emphasis on the word "business." iEmpathize is an amazing organization that is utilizing the arts to bring awareness and life change to thousands of men and women, young boys and girls who are being exploited every day. Every night. For these children the nightmare continues with out any way of escape. They can't close their eyes to the issue. They can't "turn it off." They will never be able to say "I've had enough" unless you and I do something. I want to thank everyone for their amazing contribution to this film. I am not the same because of it. Founder of iEmpathize: BRAD RILEY. Location Video Footage: TIM HILL. Location Audio Recording: JESSIE MAREK. Still Photography: PETE GIBSON. Music by SON LUX.
