CAN YOU SEE ME?
BY CHRISTIAN ELLIOTT, BRUCE MCDONALD
(UNITED STATES)

Modern-day slavery is as real today as its ever been, and Sex Tourism is on the increase only slowed down by recent restrictions with travel. These restrictions will decrease over time, and the appetite for sex tourism will be higher than ever before. There are 9000 cases a year involving sex offenders that we know of in the United States and 100s of thousands involving minors around the world.

This film is one of many designed to make people think about their actions and to be aware of their surroundings. Often Men convince themselves that this is somehow cathartic and that the women, even the children, need the money and therefore acceptable. This couldn't be further from the truth.
