THE LENS
(Tuesday October 2 at 10pm ET/PT on CBC Newsworld)
A SAFER SEX TRADE
Scarlett is a highly successful madam with 30 years experience in the sex trade business; Simone is a high-class sex worker who services wealthy clients in five Western Canadian cities; and Jennifer is a former drug addicted prostitute who now works tirelessly to offer support to sex trade workers on the streets. These women have had different experiences in the sex trade business, but they're united by one concern-the safety of women in their stigmatized industry. The film is Commercial Drive-based Carolyn Allain’s directorial debut. The film premiered at The Whistler Film Festival and received an honorable mention from the Chris Awards in Columbus, Ohio.
