    I remember a documentary to watch about the sex trade in south east Asia, “Anonymously Yours”. You can email the filmmaker,Gayle Ferraro, directly.

    Ummmm. Just so you know. Movie does not end well.

    (copied from IMDB)
    “Anonymously Yours” is the outcome of a daring film making operation on sex-trafficking in a military state where nothing is as it seems. Four Burmese women’s strikingly different life experiences come together to reveal an institution that enslaves them and as many as forty+million women worldwide in the fastest growing industry on earth: human sales. Clandestinely shot deep in the uncharted world of Southeast Asian sex trafficking, the film chronicles the merchandising of women commonplace in a land afflicted with staggering poverty and widespread corruption.
