    A film can spark a conversation. And a tough conversation can lead to real change. Film is a powerful way to shine a spotlight on serious issues and put a face and story to what is sometimes seen as just a series of statistics. Girl Up, a documentary by Toronto filmmaker, Shreya Patel highlights the issue of human sex trafficking in Toronto effortlessly.
