Press Release: Award Winning Documentary Releases its International DVD in 21 Languages


Kansas City, MO. (March, 2013) After several successful tours across the globe, sex trafficking documentary Nefarious: Merchant of Souls has released its International DVD, now with twenty-one different subtitled languages. Since the film’s release in 2011, Nefarious has won over twenty-four awards and honors including Best Feature Documentary in the 2011 California Film Awards.


Movie Guide calls it: “One of the most powerful, compelling and transformational documentaries ever made.”

From the very first scene, Nefarious: Merchant of Souls ushers you into the nightmare of sex slavery that hundreds of thousands experience daily. But it is also a film that galvanizes hope and vision through the gripping and triumphant testimonies from survivors of trafficking. It provides case studies that yield practical strategies to abolish human trafficking and expose the shadows surrounding the sex industry.

This is a documentary that is not only bringing awareness to the public, but also transforming public policy on an international scale. Within the last year, the political influence of the film has extended to a range of countries including Australia, where a Nefarious screening tour culminated into several presentations before members of the Australian Parliament. Nefarious has also been brought before members of the United Kingdom Parliament, representatives at the UN and most recently to members of the Parliament of the Netherlands at the Hague. With the film now translated into twenty-one languages, it has the potential to reach over a hundred different nations all over the world with the message of ending modern-day slavery.

Those who are engaged with the fight to abolish human trafficking, both in the US and overseas, are heralding the film as a phenomenal achievement.

Lisa L. Thompson, Liaison for the Abolition of Sex Trafficking with the Salvation Army, says it, “…tells the story of sex trafficking with tenderness and beauty while not sacrificing truth or shrinking back from darkness. This is ‘the’ must see anti-trafficking film of the year.”

Don Brewster, Founder and Director of Agape International Missions, which rescues and rehabilitates trafficking victims in Cambodia, says, “Nefarious has set a new standard and, to date, is the definitive documentary on sex trafficking.”

Exodus Cry is non-profit organization based in Kansas City and is committed to abolishing sex slavery through Christ-centered prevention, intervention, and holistic restoration for trafficking victims. 100% of all DVD proceeds go directly towards combating the global crisis of sex trafficking.
