A powerful feature documentary about child sexploitation, an epidemic happening in every country around the world. Filmed over a four year period, REDLIGHT focuses on the personal stories of young Cambodian victims and two remarkable advocates for change: grass-roots activist Somaly Mam and politician Mu Sochua. Both have since been nominated for the Noble Peace Prize. The filmmakers Guy Jacobson and Adi Ezroni won the prestigious Global Hero Award for their work in Cambodia. Using gritty footage smuggled out of brothels and harrowing testimonials, REDLIGHT follows the plight of several current and former child sex slaves. Some are trying to regain entry into Cambodian society to find some semblance of normality after their horrific experiences. Other stories highlight the plight of victims who are attempting to bring the perpetrators to justice. Their torturous yet ultimately heroic battles to find witnesses and take brothel owners to court are dramatically brought to life in this ... Written by Kerry Girvin

I Learned So Much From This
19 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm surprised that no one has ever reviewed this movie yet, so I thought about writing one myself. This documentary discusses about the harsh reality regarding child prostitution in Cambodia. You should know that not only is child prostitution an issue in Cambodia, it is also an issue around many countries in the world. Current and former child prostitutes, mainly female, are interviewed. The language spoken in this film, except for the narration by Lucy Liu, is Khmer which is accompanied by subtitles specifically for English-language viewers, such as the United States. It might be too upsetting for some people to watch, especially when regarding the violent treatment as described by the victims of child prostitution, who are of course interviewed. Also, according to the interviewees, there were brothel owners who were threatening the parents of the children to keep the child as their property, which is a form of slavery. Slavery and child prostitution is wrong and must be put to an end somehow. I feel bad for those poor children and their relatives.
