Showing reality throught fiction

According United Nations, trafficking people for sexual exploitation is one of the main economic engines worldwide, surpassing drug trafficking. Only in Spain, European leader in consumption of paid sex, this business moves more than 3,500 million euros a year. 43% of victims are captured in their own countries. We don't talk about remote places or in underdeveloped cultures... we talk about here and now.

Manipulating action movies clichés, 'IN BROAD DAYLIGHT' is a dramatic thriller to focus a terrifying reality beyond the fiction shown in the screen.

But we don't want to make only a movie. This short film will be the tool to make some many round tables with a clearly goal: to sensibilize audience, specially young people, about the truth behind trafficking persons (women and girls mostly) for her sexual explotaition.

Film Production

‘IN BROAD DAYLIGHT’ is a co production between MITAD y MITAD PRODUCCIONES and SEPTIMA ARS SCHOOL OF CINEMA AND TV OF MADRID. Big proffesionals formed in this school will be the staff of the movie. Shooting days are going to be June 16th and 17th 2018, and the picture will be relased in most important national and international film festivals after summer.
