Finding Home is a gripping documentary following the lives of three young Cambodian women who were victims of sex trafficking at a young age. Filmmaker, Derek Hammeke, brings to life the brutal and evil world of modern day slavery. Through three years of filming their post trafficking experiences, Hammeke allows these young women to reveal their stories with dignity. The viewer will see the devastation and heartache of these tragic stories, but will also experience hope and joy as they journey with these young women on a path from victim to survivor. Finding Home reminds us that we are all connected in our humanity; that we are all looking for a place of love, acceptance and community. A place called home.Written by
Evocative, beautifully filmed, scored and produced!
I tend to be a little underwhelmed when it comes to movies produced by Christians, so I sat in the room where it was shown ready to be not-so-impressed. From the first notes of the soundtrack, this gorgeous, evocative beauty took me by surprise. The quality of this movie is undeniable. Stephanie Freed is beautifully authentic, the girls' stories are amazing and courageously shared, the views are breathtaking, and the score is marvelous. It's the whole package, and for a terrific purpose. The stories of the women who have suffered trafficking in Cambodia need to be told to reveal the evils of this exploitation. Stephanie has created a vehicle that can not only inform viewers and supporters, but unlock the secrets of the industry that keep perpetrators from being prosecuted. Anyone who wants to know the real truth behind trafficking in Cambodia should not miss this. Rapha House, Freed's organization, deserves kudos not only for the great work they're doing, but for the quality with which they are doing it on every level. Bravo!
