Reporters - Think of Morocco and you think of palaces, bustling souks and age-old traditions. But the postcard image hides a darker reality: the country is a magnet for paedophiles and sex tourists. Across the country, hundred of thousands are being exploited under the gaze of their pimps. Ours reporters took secret footage of this hellish world where men, women and children are all for sale.

"A digital diary story in the Basilicata region, Italy (no.1)"
"Young dutch visual storyteller follows dream and undertakes a voyage of discovery to the unknown south of Italy. He ends up in a most curious place. It's one of worlds most ancient settlements, continuously inhabited, in the world called Matera. A behyve of alleys and streets, houses half cavated from rock formations. The first night he spends in a design hotel in a deep cave! From his new home he skims the region of Basilicata in search for stories to tell. He'd find an important reason to stay in these lands, yes of course: LOVE. Driven by fiery love and passion he seeks to become a local. But that's not too easy. Their standards are high: you have to have courage, speak the local language, eat and pray in order to love and be loved."
