A film about “stolen innocence”. Based on a true story.
Svetlana’s Journey tells the story of a 13 year old girl who is
held captive for eight months after being sold to pimps by her adopted
Written & Directed by Michael Cory Davis. The coercion
utilized by traffickers, to keep victims in a perpetual state of fear
causing severe mental and physical trauma, is conveyed throughout the
film and is representative of many of the methods traffickers utilize
regardless of the form of human trafficking.
Svetlana’s Journey will make it easy for law enforcement to understand
why victims are difficult to interrogate and typically falsify statements
in order to help the trafficker which is due to fear of death or criminal
acts against their loved ones. Most individuals can’t fathom the
level of intimidation that goes into the coercion that keeps victims
enslaved and this film provides a very visual heartfelt view into that
Svetlana’s Journey is perfect for the presenter who has 60 minutes
or more to educate a group but needs to emotionally connect them to
the issue first. This film has been used by over 40 different organizations
and law enforcement to aid in panel discussions, conferences, trainings,
and workshops. A useful tool to convey the strategies of traffickers.
