The Candy Shop is a thirty minute film that Whitestone will release in November. This film is being made for the Doorpost Film Project, and with support from 12Stone Church and StreetGrace.
The film is a fairytale/parable about the child sex trafficking epidemic that has overrun our city of Atlanta. We are using the film to not only raise awareness but provoke meaningful action towards this issue taking place in our own backyard.
Up to 500 underaged girls a month are trafficked for sex here in our city of Atlanta.
It's the number one city in the country for child sex trafficking.
The 10th in the world.
This plague has gone on for too long, and now we at Whitestone, in cooperation with Doorpost, 12Stone Church, and StreetGrace want to put a stop to it.
This film represents the spearhead of a city wide and possibly a nationwide campaign.
It is not a documentary. It is not a PSA. It is the beginning of a movement.
We will have a special pre-screening event at the Fox Theater in Atlanta. Free tickets will be available soon.
