Nefarious: Merchant of Souls

“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 in the world, human trafficking is once again 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 40 strangers every night. Most are held in dingy apartments and brothels, forced to take heavy doses of illegal drugs, and monitored very closely. Victims are often 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 of modern day sex slavery. From the first scene, Nefarious gives an in-depth look at the human trafficking industry, showing where slaves are sold (often in developed, affluent countries), where they work, and where they are confined. With footage shot in over nineteen different countries, Nefarious exposes the nightmare of sex slavery as experienced by hundreds of thousands daily, through the eyes of both the enslaved and their traffickers. Nefarious features expert analysis from international humanitarian leaders, and captures the gripping and triumphant testimonies of survivors in order to galvanize hope and vision.

 

 

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

Dr. Bennett states, “We are striving to make every effort to end sexual slavery and rescue men, women and children who are trapped in that lifestyle. We do this by aiding them in getting their lives back. We believe in a four “R” approach; Reach, Rescue, Restoration, and Reintegration. We do this through the four “P’s”; Public Awareness, Prevention, Prosecution, and Partnerships. This movie brings public awareness to the global sex trade both foreign and domestic and we are grateful to be able to show the film here in Bakersfield.”

For 10 years, Magdalene Hope has brought hope and healing to individuals caught in the commercial sex industry. In addition to its extraction, transport, and rescue services for more than 100 women, Magdalene Hope currently has a six-bed facility that opened in 2013 named Restoration Ranch Women’s Shelter.
