Sands of Silence: Waves of Courage

The Documentary

In Sands of Silence, a 15-year quest to expose the underworld of sex trafficking from Asia to the Americas leads journalist Chelo Alvarez-Stehle back to the windswept beach where her childhood ended and family secrets began. Documenting the transformation of young women in Mexico and Nepal from powerless victims to resilient survivors and passionate advocates, Chelo undertakes a parallel journey toward personal healing and family reconciliation. An intimate story about an endemic problem, Sands of Silence celebrates the triumph of the spirit with a call to action to break the chains of sexual exploitation worldwide.

SOS_SLAVES:

Changing the trafficking game

You drift through a cocoa plantation. You seem invisible, ephemeral, powerless – a ghost. Yet even a ghost may put an end to evil! A breath of wind, a whisper of sound, the chill of an enslaved child – invoked at the right moment – can reveal your past and set her free. SOS_SLAVES: Changing the Trafficking Game is a social impact game aiming to create awareness among teenagers on human trafficking and modern-day slavery.
