Salvation Army Vision Network to Make Feature Documentary on Porn Industry

Hard Corps logoThe Salvation Army Vision Network is working on a new film to uncover the façade of pornography as “a harmless pastime for consenting adults” and to pull back the curtain to reveal the ugly reality of addiction, infidelity, prostitution, child abuse, rape, and trafficking. 

The feature length documentary, Hard Corps, will follow the natural transition from pornography into the darker world of prostitution. The filmmakers have been examining both the legal and illegal forms of the sex industry, ultimately leading into the inevitable world of human sex trafficking.

"We’ve discovered around the world, and even in the United States, that there are many, many people who are involved in human trafficking and who have found themselves victims of this movement of slavery,” says Commissioner Jim Knaggs, who serves as the Territorial Commander of The Salvation Army’s USA Western Territory. “Hard Corps is a project that’s designed to help these people to get the word out and make sure people understand what is happening so we can set them free so God can have an impact in their lives."

According to the International Labour Organization, human trafficking is a $9.8 billion industry in the United States, and at least 100,000 children are being used as prostitutes in America each year, according to the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children. Worldwide, as many as 27 million men, women, and children are trafficking victims at any given time.

With that in mind, the SAVN team has already committed many hours of traveling and filming to Hard Corps, and they’re hoping that people around the world will come to support the project through Kickstarter.com, the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects.

Presently, The Salvation Army’s goal is to raise $100,000 for the completion of this documentary, and to get the funds from Kickstarter, at least $100,000 needs to be pledged on the website by 5:59 a.m. EDT, Monday, August 19.

“We’re hoping that you will contribute, that you will even donate, [or] at least join this cause,” Commissioner Knaggs says to potential supporters. “You can spread the word. You can be on the lookout for people who find themselves in these circumstances. It’s an evil that we’ve got to overcome.”
