Forgotten Place

Forgotten Place (wt) is a character driven documentary and intimate portrait of family and the sex-trafficking industry in Tel-Aviv.

The character-driven film will intimately explore personal narratives that are emblematic of a nation's battle towards recovery: three sex trafficking victims trying to regain their rights as mothers and legal citizens and to liberate themselves from a cycle of prostitution, drugs, poverty and abuse, and an American whose independently-operated shelter struggles to help them. Forgotten Place will document their stories with authenticity, providing a detailed picture of the landscape from which its victims must recover. At the same time, it will acknowledge Israel's efforts to regulate the industry and rehabilitate the victims. It is a film with global relevance, positioned at a time when nations are fraught with a similar recuperative process.
