‘Sisters for Sale’ was based on a long-standing friendship between its director Ben Randall and the film’s principal subjects, May, Pang, and Vu. With the documentary, Ben has worked to give a voice to a group of young women who don’t otherwise have a platform to share their stories.
Ben has known May, Pang, Vu, and their friends since 2010. He spent nine months living in their hometown of Sapa, Vietnam – before, during, and after filming. Members of the Hmong community were consulted throughout the production and post-production of the documentary.
All victims and survivors involved with ‘Sisters for Sale’ were given a clear understanding of the documentary’s intentions and format, and have given written consent for their names and faces to be revealed publicly. At the director’s discretion, however, some names, faces, and locations have remained concealed for the sake of privacy (and safety, where applicable).
