For twenty-five years Brenda Myers-Powell called herself ‘Breezy’ and she dominated her world, or that’s what she thought. It was a world that had turned her into a teenage, drug-addicted prostitute. After a violent encounter with a ‘john,’ Brenda woke up in the hospital and decided to change her life. Today she is a beacon of hope and a pillar of strength for hundreds of women and girls as young as fourteen who want to change their own lives. ‘Dreamcatcher’ explores the cycle of neglect, violence and exploitation which each year leaves thousands upon thousands of girls and women feeling that prostitution is their only option to survive.
'Myers-Powell understands the psychology of human trafficking, and her advice is admirably sober, clear-eyed, and devoid of sentiment.'
J. R. Jones
'These stories are hard to hear, but Myers-Powell demonstrates that bearing witness and testifying are key to recovery and healing, as are unconditional love and a belief that no one is past redemption.'
Los Angeles Time
'From street to cell, this is a precise, thoroughgoing indictment of the systemic sexism, racism and classism that creates a climate of endemic sex work, and it combines this with bold and revelatory strategies for making change.'
Sight and Sound
'An exemplary piece of verité film-making.'
'Director Kim Longinotto somehow inveigles her camera into the lives of prostitutes, abused teenagers and drug addicts on the streets of Chicago, and elicits confessions and revelations that leave you gasping.'
