Anonymously Yours

Early in this documentary on prostitution in Myanmar, the camera pans across the random faces of men gathered in public places as a voice-over reveals that most of them visit hookers as routinely as men in other countries visit taverns. Though a chilling moment in its own right, the sequence also demonstrates the resourcefulness of Massachusetts filmmaker Gayle Ferraro, who shot her footage clandestinely and smuggled it out of the country. Her film focuses on four women who were sold into prostitution by their parents or by someone else they trusted, and who are occasionally lured back by the money, which is substantial—in neighboring Thailand, for instance, the sex trade reportedly accounts for 10 percent of the gross national product. In Burmese with subtitles. 88 min.
