LOUIS TH­ER­OUX: TRAF­FICK­ING SEX

BBC Knowl­edge, 8.30pm

Herald Sun - Hit - - TOP PICKS -

Louis’ lat­est doc­u­men­tary, shot in Hous­ton, Texas, and fo­cus­ing on pros­ti­tu­tion and sex traf­fick­ing, hits hard. It’s the re­la­tion­ship be­tween pimp and pros­ti­tute that is most trou­bling. The line be­tween choice and force isn’t al­ways clear and the con­trol these men have over the women work­ing for them is aw­ful. Par­tic­u­larly trou­bling is “Nikki”, a women in thrall of the man pulling her strings. Im­por­tant view­ing.
