DREAMCATCHER, an inspirational portrait of Chicago’s Brenda Myers-Powell whose Dreamcatcher Foundation fights to end human trafficking and prevent the sexual exploitation of at-risk youth, will premiere on the Showtime network on March 27th at 9 pm ET/PT.
Dreamcatcher, directed by Kim Longinotto, had its world premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival as part of the World Cinema Documentary section, where it won the World Cinema Directing Award.
The film focusses on Brenda Myers-Powell, a former Chicago prostitute who helps women and teenage girls break the cycle of sexual abuse and exploitation. The film lays bare the hidden violence that devastates the lives of young women, their families and the communities where they live. Armed with an overwhelming personality and unflinching focus, Brenda establishes The Dreamcatcher Foundation, which helps women and girls acquire the tools they need to leave the sex industry.
