The premiere screening of this short film based on a story written by a woman previously involved in prostitution during volunteer-led workshops. This film has been 100% funded by Kickstarter pledges: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/19446085/honest-lies
Following the screening will be a discussion of the challenges facing women exiting prostitution, ways in which they can be supported, and a clear message of support for a change in UK law, calling for those who are prostituted to be decriminalised.

Proceeds from ticket sales will cover the hire of the venue and outstanding production costs, and remaining funds will be used to support women exiting prostitution, and to enter the film into film festivals.
