Human Traffic Watch

Kickstarter: Lessons from Violet

In Awareness, Human Trafficking, Sex Trafficking on November 23, 2012 at 11:25 am

Lessons from Violet is a feature-length romantic comedy written, directed and produced by award-winning filmmaker Allen Wolf.

Our story is about a religious man who has trouble with women until he meets a prostitute who becomes his dating coach.  The script was inspired by the ancient Hebrew book of Hosea.

Lessons from Violet will also bring awareness to the issue of human trafficking which is the illegal trade of human beings mainly for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation or forced labor. We’ll be the first romantic comedy to highlight the issue of human trafficking and we’ll do it in a way that entertains the audience and equips them to confront this important issue in their own community.

Just as the movie Life is Beautiful got us to laugh while revealing the reality of the holocaust we are aiming do the same with the issue of human trafficking.  We can entertain and make a difference!

  1. Thank you so much for including this on your blog! We have posted your blog on facebook and twitter!

  2. I appreciate the fact that you are taking your time to create awareness about human trafficking. I feel that this is a really serious issue and all endeavors should be put in to try to put an end to it. I feel using a romantic movie as a way to pass out the message is smart because people respond well to romance and more people are likely to watch it. Also incorporating humor to the movie is smart and will also draw more attention. I will repost your blog so that other people can also benefit from it. Thanks.
    Chizzy.
