It's been fifty weeks since my return to Asia, and I've now spent more than fifty months here in total. What began as a six-month journey has become something much bigger than I'd ever imagined, and I'm only just beginning to understand with what a monumental task lies before me in creating Sisters For Sale.
I'm gradually working my way through 22 hours of the most crucial footage. This includes interviews with victims of human trafficking, their friends and families, and experts in the field. It also includes the phonecalls and - ultimately - meetings with M and P in China.
All of this requires organisation, selection and sequencing, and then there's two and a half terrabytes of secondary material to cherrypick. The good news is, there's a lot of amazing footage here, and I can't wait to see how it all comes together.
In three days I fly back east - and, if all goes smoothly, there will be a happy ending to this story.
