Showtimes & Tickets

Fri April 5

A compassionate, eye-opening look at the complexities of sex work, Stephanie Wang-Breal’s latest documentary provides fly-on-the-wall access to the goings on at the Queens Human Trafficking Court, a boldly progressive female-run space that favors rehabilitation over jail time. The film’s non-judgmental approach is bolstered by interviews that reveal each defendant’s unique set of circumstances and reveals the women who assist them—from the social workers to the lawyers, to the calmly empathetic Judge Toko Serita—to be real-life heroes.
