Documentary 'The Price of Sex' featured on CNN International


Filmmaker and photojournalist Mimi Chakarova spoke with CNN International this week about her new documentary 'The Price of Sex'. The film exposes the trafficking of women and girls from eastern Europe into the international sex trade.


Bulgarian-born Chakarova spent a decade making her film, journeying deep into red light districts around Turkey, Greece and Dubai, and posing as a prostitute to expose the reality of the trade.


"The system is so brutal," she told CNN. "What these pimps and madams do to these girls - and I have to call them girls because many are not old enough to be women - is devastating."


'The Price of Sex' was screened at the Human Rights Watch International Film Festival in London this week and will air in the U.S. on The Documentary Channel on April 11.
