Hope & Courage, Trafficking Doc


Hope & Courage is a short documentary about the sexual exploitation of women. The video was produced for Transformations, a project of John Tolo’s in Frogtown, St. Paul, MN. The interviewees were taped over┬áthree sessions, the “window re-enactments” were taped in a single evening using mostly untrained actors (one trained actor acted as a coach). The music was created by Martha Low using a Yamaha S90XS keyboard. The entire project was shot and edited in three weeks for a conference on Human Trafficking. Many people and circumstances came together to make this video possible – for which I am very grateful! (see Blog, “Volunteer Spirit”)
