“Narrated by Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie, Trading Women enters the worlds of brothel owners, trafficked girls, voluntary sex workers, corrupt police and anxious politicians. The documentary investigates the trade in minority girls and women from the hill tribes of Burma, Laos and China, into the Thai sex industry. Filmed on location, this is the first film to follow the trade in women in all its complexity and to consider the impact of this ‘far away’ problem on the gobal community. The film also explores the international community’s response to the issue.” Read more at Trading Women (D.E.R.) and Trading Women (WHYY)
