Nefarious: Merchant of Souls Documentary

Nefarious.  Honestly, before I heard about this documentary, I didn’t even know what that word really meant, so I looked it up.  It means extremely wicked, evil, sinful, vile, villainous, abominable, heinous, treacherous, etc.

Nefarious: Merchant of Souls, a project of Exodus Cry, is part 1 of a documentary trilogy that goes “beneath the veil of the sex industry”.Nefarious

Nefarious, Merchant of Souls, is a hard-hitting documentary that exposes the disturbing trends in modern sex slavery. From the very first scene, Nefarious ushers you into the nightmare of sex slavery that hundreds of thousands experience daily. You’ll see where slaves are sold (often in developed, affluent countries), where they work, and where they are confined. You’ll hear first-hand interviews with real victims and traffickers, along with expert analysis from international humanitarian leaders.

The Incurable Fanatics Tour (the Nefarious screenings tour) is taking place across the USA from August through November (as of this writing).  Find out if there is a screening in your area and check out the Nefarious Facebook page to stay updated about the documentary.  The DVD will be released on 11-11-11, and you can pre-order it here.

UPDATE: The DVD released May 1, 2012, and you can purchase it here.  Nefarious has won numerous awards and has been called by Movie Guide, “one of the most compelling documentaries ever made.”

This looks to be a journey into darkness, but from a Christian perspective so that we won’t be left in that darkness, but rather come away with hope.  I haven’t seen this yet, but I’ve heard that it is very well done and very moving, and I wanted to make you aware of it.  To be honest, I have a hard time watching this kind of stuff, and I’m a little nervous that this could be a stumbling block for some guys and I don’t want to cause that by sharing this, but sex slavery does need to be exposed for the dark evil that it is.  Here’s the trailer . . .

“If to be feelingly alive to the sufferings of my fellow creatures is to be a fanatic, I am one of the most incurable fanatics ever permitted to be at large.”  ~William Wilberforce

  1. oh goodness. let me know when this comes out so I can see it. scary though. I’m glad they interviewed people who have purchased girls so they can see how real it is. I got a little sick watching the trailer alone, so I hope I won’t need a whole box of tissues when I do see it.

    William Wilberforce is the model that Benjamin Nolot has nobly taken.  He starts with the first step in abolition of any type of slavery…AWARENESS!  That is where we must stand as Christians if we are interested in making a difference in this battle for freedom.  We must expose this darkness to the light! I went to see this film with my two teenage daughters and do not regret doing so.  The film is calling sin by it’s right name without defrauding the viewer.  This is a must see for all who are interested in following the call of Christ to “destroy the works of the devil”.  I will purchase a copy once they are available on DVD to do my part in spreading awareness and enlistment into this army of believers!
