Therapeutic films.

Meaningful moments.

Lasting change.

A full-service production house and digital platform.

We provide healing-centered agencies and facilitators with access to therapeutic short films—driving meaningful moments of healing for clients impacted by harm and violence in the sex industry.

Why short therapeutic films?

Drive conversations

Check mark

Using short therapeutic films with the support of a trained facilitator serves as a catalyst for healing-centered dialogue. Clients gain new context and language for challenging conversations.

Witness growth and healing

Check mark

The support of short therapeutic films makes it possible to quantify and articulate progress. We recommend facilitators show a film numerous times, so clients can identify and observe their own growth.

Fuel connection

Check mark

After experiencing abuse, many clients have difficulties visualizing their story. Our films feature strategic storytelling to provide opportunities for clients to learn, connect, and relate to characters in the film.

Engage learners of all kinds

Check mark

Films engage different learning styles—from visual and spatial, to linguistic and interpersonal. For those who have experienced harm and violence in the sex industry, film therapy is an innovative and transformative tool.
