15 May 2012

 

A new film tells the story of a Dutch-Moroccan social worker fighting the ills of sex-trafficking within his community. The country’s 2000 legalization of prostitution and sex trafficking was intended to reduce health and exploitation hazards for sex workers, but filmmaker reports in al-Jazeera coverage of the movie that the country has seen a move away from “old style” Dutch pimps and towards the involvement of some members of immigrant communities. The movie is named after these “Lover Boys”
