In film and television productions, trafficking in people is often portrayed on-screen as involving a process of using physical force, fraud, deception, or other forms or coercion or intimidation to obtain, recruit, harbour, and transport people.


Human trafficking is the commercial trade ("smuggling") of human beings, who are subjected to involuntary acts such as begging, sexual exploitation (eg. prostitution and forced marriage), or unfree labour (eg. involuntary servitude or working in sweatshops).

It has been an increasingly popular subject for filmmakers in recent years, as demonstrated by films such as Amistad and Ride with the Devil. As well, popular crime series such as CSI: Miami have had shows which revolve around the human trafficking of young women, who are forced to work as prostitutes. Filmmakers and television shows use these trafficking-themed movies to educate the public about the injustices of slavery.
