Sisters For Sale
What happens when your friends are kidnapped, and forced into the world of brides for sale - where money speaks louder than basic human rights?
Newcastle filmmaker Ben Randall documents his real-life investigation to find two of his Vietnamese friends, after they have been sold off to bidding husbands deep in mainland China.
Capturing his personal story as it unfolds, Sisters For Sale traverses a morally complex situation, as Randall is surrounded by a culture seemingly apathetic to the plight of poor farmers' daughters. The Western idea of free will and personal agency clashes with the traditional role of the female, to which many young Vietnamese women find themselves bound.
As Randall picks up the pieces and follows the trail, the situation becomes more and more complex, as he captures extraordinary footage on this deeply personal quest.
