I should post this in randomness, but it is truely an excellent film, so i'm just gonna start a thread anyway! I just finished the film The Whistleblower... it's incredible. I've wanted to watch it since it came out, but only managed to get hold of it last week, and watched it this evening. It's based on a true story, about a woman who worked in law enforcement in the UN, on a peacekeeping mission in Bosnia after the war. She is in the gender division and is responsible for investigating domestic violence, crimes against women, etc. In the course of her work, two girls land in the UN looking for refuge. She realises something is wrong, and that they have been trafficked. She then discovers that there had been a raid on the bar where they worked, and that the girls who had been taken away from that bar during the raid were later returned to the bar, because it was discovered that they hadn't been trafficked after all. She is really suspicious, so she investigates. And she meets with resistance at every turn -- because the clients of these girls are police officers, peacekeepers, military officials, etc. She then discovers that not only are they clients, but they are aware that the girls are trafficked, that there is a blind eye turned while girls are brought across borders -- and then she's fired.
I don't know how close to reality the movie is -- it says inspired by true events, but it's based on a book by the 'real' Kathryn Bolkovak, and the real Kathryn Bolkovak seems to endorse the film. Anyway, it is really worth watching, although it's pretty harrowing. You don't actually 'see' much of what happens, but you know what's happening, and it's pretty horrible cos of how it's covered up by people in uniforms and organisations that you should be able to trust.
