See screening of Gridshock: Sex Trafficking Demand in Iowa: Filmmaker Vanessa McNeal, who graduated from Iowa State University in 2015 with a degree in child, adult, and family services, will will screen her fourth and most recent film, Gridshock, a documentary exposing the hidden and disturbing reality behind sex trafficking in Iowa and the often-overlooked reality about why the industry thrives — because there is a demand for it. McNeal’s film features survivors of sex trafficking, local and federal law enforcement, advocates, politicians, and a recovering sex addict. What you think you know about sex trafficking will be challenged. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This film is 90 minutes; a discussion and Q&A with filmmaker Vanessa McNeal will immediately follow the screening.
