Malibu filmmaker launches entertainment-based campaign to stop 21st-century slavery

By Bibi Jordan / Special to The Malibu Times

Malibu filmmaker Chelo Alvarez-Stehle is bringing focus to a delicate, but all-too real problem that most Americans assume no longer exists: slavery. She is one of a group of Malibu activists determined to educate teens about human trafficking, the most pervasive modern form of slavery.


Alvarez-Stehle's current project, “SANDS OF SILENCE,” is a film inspired by the filmmaker's own experiences and those of the many other women like Anu. One of only five documentaries chosen from hundreds of submissions in a competition by the PBS/CPB Producers Workshop, “SANDS OF SILENCE” is currently in post-production.

Wonderful publicity for you, Chelo, and thanks for the shout-out to the Workshop, too!  I totally understand about editing that changes what you said, no worry.  But it's surprising who gets things right and who doesn't.  I was once interviewed on the same afternoon by a very small local paper and a large national paper, and I was sure I said pretty much the same things to both -- but the local was much more accurate and much more interesting, too! 

Thank you, Judith, I feel relieved by your understanding. :))  Thanks so much for your support to my project always!

And a very Happy New Year to you, Chelo
