Heroes lead with their heart. Cinequest Mavericks Studio brings you LIFE IS LOVE, the provocative film about a group of inspirational young women who have triumphed over severe adversity and their highly controversial leader. Arguably, the world's most renowned and controversial leader in the movement to free and transform girls from the ravages of human trafficking, Somaly Mam, a survivor and empowered inspiration, signs her books: "Life Is Love." TIME MAGAZINE recognized Somaly Mam as recognized as one of the 100 most influential women in the world today. Recently her story has come under media attack. Filmed prior to these recent allegations from renowned journalists, LIFE IS LOVE presents her story and those of the young women who idolize her, raw and in their voice. Much of the film shocks, much inspires and ultimately LIFE IS LOVE is an exploration of the best of humankind as well as the worst: from lies and brutality to compassion and love. The backdrop? Cambodia: the alluring land and people that hold the reputations of being both the Pearl of Asia as well as the place of the Khmer Rouge outrages. LIFE IS LOVE stirs your senses and emotions, captivates your mind, and ultimately challenges your spirit to transform the light and darkness of humanity.
