Overview

The Whistleblower

Inspired by real events, writer/director Larysa Kondracki's intense docudrama tells the tale of an American policewoman who uncovers evidence of human trafficking while assisting a U.N. peacekeeping mission in Bosnia. Nebraska cop Kathy Bolkovac (Rachel Weisz) is caught in the middle of a vicious custody battle with her ex-husband when she seizes the opportunity to make a quick 100,000 dollars tax-free by spending six months in Bosnia as a U.N. peacekeeper. Shortly after Kathy arrives in Bosnia, Human Rights Commission head Madeleine Rees (Vanessa Redgrave) promotes her to the U.N.'s Gender Office, where she begins studying sexual-assault cases. But when Kathy discovers that her fellow peacekeepers are involved in a human-trafficking ring, the ensuing controversy makes her the target of some very powerful -- and incredibly ruthless -- people.

Human trafficking unfortunately flourishes even to this day. I became aware of Kathryn Bolkovac's case when I read 'The Natashas: The Horrific Inside Story of Slavery, Rape, and Murder in the Global Sex Trade' by Victor Malarek. I am glad they turned her story into this well-made movie. It is not for the faint of heart. The movie focuses more on the injustice she suffered at the hands of her employer (DynCorp, thinly veiled), but even so, you can see a horrific glimpse into the abuse and torture the victims suffer. If you feel outraged and angry, get involved in stopping this modern-day slavery through organizations like Polaris Project.
