A Whore Like Me

Society/Biography, Israel 2019

When Shilla was 22, she was kidnapped from a pub in Hungary and sold to work as a prostitute in Israel, along with other young women from Eastern Europe. Twenty years on, Shilla has managed to free herself from the grip of the men who destroyed her life. She also broke away from drug abuse and has managed to stay clean for a decade already. Now she tries to support other women by volunteering for the Levinsky Clinic that provides medical and psyhco–social services to prostitutes in Tel Aviv. When the Ministry of Interior in Israel refuses to grant Shilla a residency permit, she goes looking for her kidnappers to obtain proof that she is a survivor of sex trafficking. The journey to the past forces Shilla to return to the scene of prostitution, only this time with a little more power and a camera in hand. Shilla begins to document and work through the trauma. But at what price does it come to confront painful memories?
