Discovery en Español Exposes The Sex Tourism Industry In Medellín, Colombia

Over the last two decades, Medellin has gone from being globally known as a drug traffic and extreme violence destination to becoming a thriving cosmopolitan city. Progress and peace have resulted in an exponential increase of tourism, but have also caused unexpected collateral damage: the rise in sex tourism in this Colombian city. Many of the illegal networks run by foreigners in the United States and Europe, offer Medellin guided tours that include underage prostitutes in their packages available for online purchase.

Narrated and directed by ”Clandestino”’s journalist and researcher David Beriain, EL MERCADO DE LA INOCENCIA is a one-hour documentary that portrays criminal networks and witnesses teenagers entering Medellin’s illegal business as they start a journey that often begins by selling their virginity to the best foreign bidder.

EL MERCADO DE LA INOCENCIA is a Discovery en Español original production headed by Michela Giorelli, Rafael Rodriguez and Carlos Cediel. It was produced by 93 metros.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
