Mischa Marcus and Stephanie Bell from the film “I am still here.”

“I Am Still Here” is one of the most disturbing must-see films in the San Francisco Black Film Festival – a horror film about the sex trafficking of children. According to the filmmakers, although it is a work of cinematic fiction, it is based on real events.

My daughters, nieces, sisters, cousins, sons, brothers, and non-related family – everybody is susceptible to being kidnapped and trafficked, either for sex or their organs. It’s a crazy, sick world we live in, with a lot of money behind these pedophile kidnapping murderers. Remember, this happens all over the world.
