Only Light is a film about the unseen and dehumanizing world of International Human Sex Trafficking in the United States and essentially asking the audience to take their blinders off. This photo taken by was shot on location at the South Coast Botanic Garden in Los Angeles, California. The goal was to create the character's homeland: the Congo. "It has been both a challenge and an adventure to make this happen.

 

As you probably know, Los Angeles looks nothing like the lush green forests of the Congo; however, with determination, creativity and a touch of imagination, we were able to create a perfect location for our African scenes. We really felt as if we had traveled to Congo for a day, and as good friends do, we brought you postcards from our travels." ~ Elena Ostroumova | Producer
