Featured Contributing photographer Marvi Lacar was recently featured on NY1 about her film “Escape” on Kenyan Child Brides’ Quest for Freedom.

“To make her documentary “Escape,” filmmaker Marvi Lacar left her homein New York City and traveled to Kenya to visit a safe house for Masaigirls. Those young girls are routinely married off to men sometimes fouror five times their age and are also subjected to female genitalmutilation.

The eight-, 10- and 12-year-old child brides are seeking shelter from the hellish lifestyle that was forced upon then.

“Emotionally, I don’t think you are ever really prepared to see things like that happen to children,” says Lacar.
