**Joint WINNER - Sexual exploitation- Unchosen 2013 Human Trafficking Short Film Competition** Directed by Li-Da Kruger.
Meet Anja and Ian, a man and woman from two vastly different backgrounds with two vastly different experiences of a sexual encounter. Anja, who is forced into sexual exploitation, and Ian, who describes his experience of paying for sex. This is one of the few films that competently deals with ‘demand’.
Victims of trafficking for sexual exploitation are removed from the communities they live in, leaving them vulnerable to exploitation and reducing their ability to escape. Many victims are groomed over a long period of time and are coerced into performing sexual acts once they believe that they are in a relationship with their abuser. Many victims are therefore reluctant to speak out or seek help, or are unable to due to language barriers, fear of the police and organisations, fear of violence and being caught by their abusers.
