Without Consent
WITHOUT CONSENT is an artistic retelling – in film, photos and text - of what happens to victims of domestic sex trafficking. A CIVIL REMEDY is a short documentary about an American girl, Danielle, who was trafficked for sex in Boston. WITHOUT CONSENT presents the film with an educational guide to the social, political and legal dimensions of the sex trafficking story. The film exists because Danielle lived to tell her story. Many do not.

WITHOUT CONSENT also presents a photo essay about six girls whose arrest photographs may be their only public record. The essay documents filmmaker Kate Nace Day’s search for these girls, their families, their stories.

It is a search for the very meaning of consent.

Kate Nace Day is Director and Producer of WITHOUT CONSENT.
