We have spent more than two years researching and collecting footage for our upcoming feature length documentary 10,000 Men, which explores and exposes the dark world of the commercial sex trafficking industry. In the film, one of our main focuses is how children are often targets of traffickers (or pimps): a truth we hope to reveal. It's important to consider this issue from a societal perspective and investigate who and what fuels this industry. Many people believe that both women and men join this industry willingly and are not aware that the average recruitment age is 14 and that that the tactics used by traffickers to seduce their young victims are steeped in psychology. Vulnerable children are often targeted; those who have never had a stable family or home life and traffickers prey on these "weaknesses". Although the film enters into the discussion of the larger commercial sex industry in the US, it specifically highlights the child sex slavery epidemic by exploring allowing both current and former victims to tell their stories from where it started in their childhood. We've also interviewed traffickers and customers to get the deepest possible look into this world.
Although we are finished filming and in the post-production phase right now, we still have a long way to go and need your support every step of the way. Everyone needs to understand this issue further and our film can and will make that happen.
