CFDb Review:

This documentary was powerful and very well done.  This is a MUST SEE documentary.  Everyone should get involved in stopping this outrage.  Check out the CFDb Movie Review.

Film Synopsis:

Nefarious I: Merchant of Souls is a controversial documentary exposing the undercurrent of injustice beneath the surface of sex-tourism. Millions of women and children around the world are increasingly becoming the expendable pawns of a burgeoning business catering to the demand for illicit sex.

These women and children are dehumanized and exploited while mainstream culture remains complicit in their demise. Benji Nolot goes undercover to reveal the plight of the exploited and uncover the hypocrisy and complicity of cultures around the world that foster this industry, as well as offer an unexpected hope for comprehensive change.

    “*This film is not really “Christian”, but a call to action for the “Church”.”
    What makes this film not Christian? Because it deals with issues that we dont talk about in church? I think this is one of the best Christian films out today.

    As far as we know, there is no Christian message in it. That means there doesn’t show in the film any direct conversations about God or Christianity. Were there actually conversations about God in this film? We haven’t seen it yet.

    I really thought this film was excellent! It was a great survey of the issue and how it has affected the countries of the world. It really helps explain how women from different societies are inducted into sex slavery, exposing the various angles used by traffickers. I also love that it addresses the issue of legalized prostitution. Many people and nations get stuck at the prostitution vs. trafficking debate and think that if a woman is “free” to sell her body then there is no other reason or pressure that can keep her in bondage. really?!?! Off my soap box, this film actually goes to nations with different policies regarding trafficking and evaluates the results. It shows very clearly that legalizing prostitution does note diminish trafficking but increases it.
    The content is great, but the cinematography is also excellent. Often times, small organizations produce documentaries that look “small time.” This film obviously had a great budget, great writers, and great tech/editing team. It really watches more like a movie than a documentary. At points, I had to remind myself that I was being educated on an issue, not just taking the film in for enjoyment. It has a religious message, but it is not cheesy like many Christian films.
    It has stories of women that have come out of trafficking and have been restored not only outwardly, but have found peace and strength. Until seeing this film, I hoped restoration for trauma at this level was possible but all I had seen was more and more devastated women. After watching this film, I now believe that despite the statistics, restoration is possible.
    If you are passionate about justice for women, this is a must-see film. It will provoke, educate, touch and inspire you that this issue can be ended in our lifetime. I really feel empowered to be a modern day abolitionist; a 2012 William Wilberforce. If he can do it then, we can do it now. Thanks Nefarious documentary for equipping and encouraging me to fight for the end of human trafficking! Well Done!

    This is the reason I keep coming back to this place. I can’t believe all the new stuff since the last time!

    About the film being “Christian”…It seems like that might mean different things to different people, but having seen the film twice, I can tell you this: Watching a former prostitute (actually several of them) weeping and calling on the name of Jesus is both a heart-wrenching and a beautiful thing. They all point to him as the source of healing from a horrible life of selling themselves and selling themselves short of the love that God has for them. One man, working with child victims of trafficking in Cambodia, clearly says that it’s not money or education that will make any difference fighting this problem, but God alone. This film is hard to watch, but worth your time. It is not graphic, but still manages to expose you to some of the truth about what is happening in the world. I’ll let the viewer decide on whether this is a Christian film or not, but either way, I recommend that you watch it.

    Thank you Tary for your comments – we haven’t seen this film yet and this is what we thought but we’ve removed the comment as it is definitely a Christian film. Thanks again for bringing that to our attention. I’m really looking forward to seeing it.

    I’m Christian and i like the Film first because of the message that this film deliver and second because this is really helpful for Human being to know how other people are living on the other side of the globe.
    Why people are just hang up on because its not a Christian film? what is that mean? So only christian film can teach you something? or only christian ‘PEOPLE’ can say good things?
    Come on isn’t the the Holy Bible say: John 15:12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.

    Matthew 5:43-48 he says:……. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? …
    So please stop judging people AGAIN, if our God can help and save siner why can’t we love all people and help and support them.

    We would note if a film is a call to action for the church instead of a Christian film because we are a Christian Film database and people expect us to make the difference. We originally had a note that it wasn’t a Christian film but then were corrected so we removed the statement. We do rely on the viewers a lot for updating comments, etc.

    I agree with you that anyone can say something good and Christians should definitely take up the fight against atrocities in the world.

    I hope that makes sense.
