NoVo Foundation’s The Life Story online film series and platform launches

I worked with Vermilion Films over the course of the last year on an intimate and powerful short film series that recently launched online. The 18-part series is part of an interactive online platform exploring the moments in a woman’s life that pulls them into, and out of, sex trafficking. This project was a collaboration between a formidable group of creatives, many of them women, at Vermilion Films, Brew Advisors and NoVo Foundation, along with the 15 brave women who shared their stories.

This style of storytelling – stark interviews with eyes directly into the camera – envisioned by director Irene Taylor Brodsky, was a really affecting way to capture these often shocking experiences of these women in The Life. NoVo Foundation is now utilizing the films to help create awareness about these issues with social workers, law enforcement, medical practitioners and other service providers that have the potential to change the course of these women’s lives. I was a producer and editor on this project.
