She's a Bulgarian photo journalist who's been documenting the sex trade in three successive photo and film projects -one for PBS Frontline.

Actually this film has nothing to do with Eastern European cam studios directly - it's the absolute bottom rung of the world sex trade that she portrays here - but the striking photos and in depth interviews do allow one to see what the word "poverty" really means in the countryside and small towns of Moldavia or the Ukraine, and maybe understand better why some rural women are so desperate to get out that they will risk almost anything to do so.

The Price of Sex: A documentary film investigating sex trafficking
by Mimi Chakarova
The Price of Sex is a feature-length documentary about young Eastern European women who’ve been drawn into a netherworld of sex trafficking and abuse. Intimate, harrowing and revealing, it is a story told by the young women who were supposed to be silenced by shame, fear and violence. Photojournalist Mimi Chakarova, who grew up in Bulgaria, takes us on a personal investigative journey, exposing the shadowy world of sex trafficking from Eastern Europe to the Middle East and Western Europe. Filming undercover and gaining extraordinary access, Chakarova illuminates how even though some women escape to tell their stories, sex trafficking thrives.
