THE PRICE OF YOUTH examines the recent explosion in systematic trafficking of young girls and women from Nepal to work as prostitutes in Bombay, in neighboring India. Featuring undercover footage from WITNESS partner Andrew Levine and narrated by Winona Ryder, with music by K. Sridhar and Philip Glass, THE PRICE OF YOUTH exposes this horrific practice. It documents grassroots efforts to combat the forced prostitution of Nepali girls and to rehabilitate these young victims. THE PRICE OF YOUTH was featured as a "Work in Progress" at the Sundance International Film Festival. Excerpts of THE PRICE OF YOUTH were included in the January 18, 2001 episode of the Oprah Winfrey Show with Madeleine Albright, about the issue of worldwide trafficking.
