facts

 “Modern slavery.” It sounds like a paradox. Hasn’t humanity progressed? Didn’t we leave slavery dead on the battlefields of the American Civil War? Didn’t social reformers like Lincoln and Wilberforce legislate against such cruelty over a hundred years ago? So we had thought. But, with over 27 million enslaved people across the world, human trafficking is still the battlefront of the century.

Regardless of nationality, victims are systematically stripped of their identity, battered into gruesome submission, and made to perform humiliating sexual acts on up to 30 strangers every night. Most are held in makeshift jail cells, forced to take heavy doses of illegal drugs, and monitored very closely. On average, victims are thrown into such ghastly oppression at 13 years old. Some are abducted outright, while others are lured out of poverty, romantically seduced, or sold by their families.  

Nefarious, Merchant of Souls, is a hard-hitting documentary that exposes the disturbing trends in modern sex slavery. From the very first scene, Nefarious ushers you into the nightmare of sex slavery that hundreds of thousands experience daily. You’ll see where slaves are sold (often in developed, affluent countries), where they work, and where they are confined. You’ll hear first-hand interviews with real victims and traffickers, along with expert analysis from international humanitarian leaders.

From initial recruitment to victim liberation–– and everything between––the previously veiled underworld of sex slavery is uncovered in the groundbreaking, tell-all Nefarious, Merchant of Souls.


 Facts about sex slavery:

• Over 27 million people are enslaved around the world

• Human trafficking (sexual, domestic, industrial and agricultural) is a 32 billion dollar per year industry, bringing in more revenue than the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB combined

• The U.S. government says human trafficking is one of the largest criminal industries in the world — second only to drugs — and the fastest growing

• Another person is bought or sold every 8 seconds; every 30 seconds that victim is a child

• There are nearly two million children in the international commercial sex trade.

• According to the United Nations, 161 countries out of 192 are involved with human trafficking

• At least 1.39 million of the 12.3 million trafficking victims are estimated to be victims of commercial sexual slavery

• 70% of female victims who are trafficked are for the purpose of the commercial sex trade

• The average age of entry into commercial sex slavery in the United States is 13 years old


In this darkness and nightmare for many, we find hope and that love takes this pain away. 


네파리우스: 머천트 오브 소울 

"모든 아픔을 이기는 사랑"

<네파리우스; 머천트 오브 소울>은 전세계에서 벌어지는 불법적인 인신매매를 비롯한 매춘 산업을 다룬 다큐멘터리 영화이다. 영화 첫 장면은 동유럽의 ‘브레이킹 그라운드’라 불리는 인신매매 현장에서 시작한다. 벤자민 놀롯 감독은 전세계 17개국을 돌아다니며 왜 매춘산업이 성행하는지, 이를 종식시킬 방법은 무엇인지에 관한 현장 탐사보도를 전문가들의 인터뷰와 병행하여 보여준다. 매춘 산업에 종사했던, 혹은 인신매매 범으로 활동했던 사람들의 생생한 증언도 같이한다.

이 많은 어둠과 악몽가운데서도, 희망과 사랑이 고통을 극복하게 합니다.
