SAT. 11/26: MIMI CHAKAROVA’S THE PRICE OF SEX
Introduced by global photo-essayist Mark Brecke, UCB luminary Mimi Chakarova is here with her unprecedented inquiry into a dark side of immigration. A feature doc in its West Coast theatrical premiere, The Price of Sex sheds light on the underground criminal network trafficking Eastern European women, forced into prostitution abroad. Traveling from her home country through Greece, Turkey, to Dubai, Bulgarian-born photo-journalist Chakarova caps years of painstaking on-the-ground reporting—even posing as a prostitute to gather her material—filming undercover with extraordinary access. She was internationally recognized with the Human Rights Watch Award for Bravery in Filmmaking.
