Current Project

The Long Rescue


The Long Rescue follows Filipina teen sex trafficking survivors for six years as they recover in a secret shelter and re-enter the world – hoping to overcome the poverty, predators, and pimps of their childhood. Full of dreams and love for their families, they must navigate a callous society and their own embodied trauma before they can truly thrive.
