Description

The Pink Room tells the story of Mien and other young girls who have been victimized in the unspeakably dark world of child sex slavery. Mien grew up in Svay Pak, Cambodia, a small village notorious for one thing: the trafficking of children. At a young age Mien entered life in a brothel, and her virginity was sold for a high price. Held hostage and raped daily by eager pedophiles, Mien’s sense of self-worth is diminished with each customer. But this is not just a story about the problem. The Pink Room is an inspiring story of restoration as ordinary people become heroes, lives are mended, and Cambodians rise up to take back their country. In a world where it is estimated that over one million children are held captive and sexually abused, a flower blooms in the heart of Cambodia.

Winner of multiple awards including the 2014 Emmy Award for Best Documentary (Northern California Regional Emmy Awards.)

Additional 20 minutes of special features & optional English subtitles. Widescreen

Editorial Reviews

Of the millions of sex slaves worldwide, an estimated 50,000 are found in Cambodia. Filmmaker Joel Sandvos' The Pink Room is an informative (and often depressing) documentary about mixed success with trying to end the trafficking of child sex slaves in Cambodia, a country described as ripe for the objectification and brutalization of children a generation after Pol Pot and the sweeping psychological effects of mass genocide. Poverty naturally drives children into prostitution, but sadly not the ordinary kind: a wide market exists for girls as young as five who can easily be subjected to fetishes and torture. The filmmakers introduce us to Mien, who sold herself to a brothel at age 13 in order to provide food for her starving sister and mother. Mien experienced sickening brutality for years, but was ultimately rescued by an advocacy organization offering aftercare, rehabilitation, and skills training. That group plays a large role here, guiding viewers through the complications of trying to end sex trafficking—which has met with limited if cherished success. Some of the most powerful moments here are when one advocate confronts obvious pedophile-tourists and chases them away, knowing full well that they will simply travel to the next village to pay for a victim. Despite the hopelessness, however, Mien's story (she is now a tailor and married) and that of others offers encouragement. A powerful festival award-winner, this is highly recommended.

- Pink Room

The Pink Room is a true story of Hope! The story following the life of Mein shows you the power and hope that comes when individuals choose to step in and participate in the fight against the evils of sex trafficking.

- Pink Room

It's easy to become overwhelmed with the issue of sex trafficking and feeling that it's a battle that can't be won. The Pink Room shows the hope of Christ in this battle. Mein's story is an example of this hope. This battle will be won, one life at a time.
