At Exodus Cry, we produce films that expose modern-day sex slavery and promote its eradication. The stories we tell as a culture shape and define our world. It is critical that we harness the power of creative media to tell stories that align our hearts with truth.
With each film we create, we strive to awaken a passion for human dignity, a vision for the sanctity of life, and the conviction that no human being should be bought or sold. By taking our cameras deep into the dark underworld where women and children are enslaved, we are able to shine a light on this injustice and inspire proactive abolition.
Our films combine hard facts and compelling storytelling with stunning imagery as we invite the masses to join our efforts to end this injustice around the world. Films have the power to change people, and people can change the world!
Reasons why we make films:
Expose, Inspire, Free
- To shine a light on the injustice hidden in the shadows
- To educate the public on the critical issues relating to sex trafficking
- To inspire action in the masses
- To change the social conditions that foster a sex slave industry
- To bring freedom and healing to victims
Nefarious: Merchant of Souls
Released in 2011, Nefarious: Merchant of Souls is a hard-hitting documentary that exposes the disturbing trends of modern-day sex slavery. From its very first scene, Nefarious provides an in-depth look into the human trafficking industry, showing where slaves are sold (often in developed, affluent countries), where they work, and where they are confined.
With footage shot in over nineteen countries, Nefarious looks through the eyes of both the enslaved and their traffickers to expose the nightmare of sex slavery as experienced by hundreds of thousands of people each day. Nefarious also features expert analysis from international humanitarian leaders and captures the gripping, triumphant testimonies of survivors. It is through these true stories of survival that we galvanize hope and vision.
From initial recruitment to victim liberation,—and everything in between—the previously veiled underworld of sex slavery is uncovered in the groundbreaking, tell-all Nefarious: Merchant of Souls.
Liberated: Hookup Culture and the New Sexual Revolution
After completing our film Nefarious, we wondered, “What kind of society is producing so many men willing to buy a woman or child for sex?” We knew that the next step in the journey needed to be exposing the cultural forces that are fueling a toxic sexuality.
In Liberated, we focus on western culture. We examine a society where sex sells, where women are expected to conform to an idealized sexual image, and where men are socialized to consume women for sex.
This film asks the question, how does our conception of gender fuel our sexuality? And what role does media play in shaping our ideas about what it means to be a man or woman in today’s culture?
Liberated explores undiscovered fronts in the war on sexual exploitation and offers unexpected hope for healing and transformation.
Our films are produced debt–free so that the proceeds from each DVD and ticket sold can go to fuel the Prevention, Intervention, and Restoration work of Exodus Cry.
