Break the Chain
Our March runner-up, Break the Chain, is returning for a second chance at a grant! Break the Chain is a documentary film focusing on human trafficking within Michigan. Human trafficking is often viewed as occurring solely on an international level; however, the film was created to draw attention to the prevalence of both labor and sex trafficking on local levels. The Human Trafficking Taskforce, nonprofits, and local shelters will use the film to spread awareness and educate the public about the cause. If Break the Chain wins the April SoupGrant, the documentary team will use the money to cover a theater rental to premiere the film, as well as the travel expenses accumulated during shooting.
