Hidden Tears Project


At Hidden Tears, we create films, series, virtual reality and theater to raise mainstream awareness on important social issues such as human trafficking, sexual exploitation and gender inequality. We bring the most talented storytellers together with extraordinary experts such as survivors, case workers, law enforcement, intelligence operatives, human rights activists and child advocates to tell innovative and impactful stories to inspire real change.

At Hidden Tears, we have completed two films, a dance film entitled Unseen Dances, in collaboration with Molly Gochman’s Red Sand Project. The film has screened in LA, Chicago, Guanajuato and Mexico City. Our second film is Tanya, written by former House of Cards staff writer Sam Forman and directed by star of Chicago Fire Monica Raymund.

We are changing the way that Hollywood tells stories about women, men and human trafficking. The films and TV that we produce are not only consciously gender balanced between cast and crew, but we tell stories that reflect these dramatic realities. We additionally provide consulting services to networks, studios and other media outlets telling similar stories. Our Blog, Vlog and Podcast provides an informational hub with articles, videos and interviews with experts, survivors and advocates of these critical issues.
