Darnice Wright is an award-winning Filmmaker and Humanitarian dedicated to Youth Advocacy. In recent years, Darnice recognized the increasing number of missing children and became determined to understand the occurrences transpiring in our communities. Subsequently, she learned that many of them were not runaways but are victims of sex trafficking.
Influenced by the issue and wanting to make a difference, she developed her short film to present the reality of the illegal act that profits $150 billion per year. Her recent work and research have now motivated her to present this film nationwide to exploit the harsh realities. The 40-minute short film, Fishnets, dives into the heart of sex trafficking and is set to display the modern events before and after sex trafficking victims are demoralized and violated. Following the production and analysis, Darnice has concluded that the keys to prevention and the solution are education and awareness.
Darnice founded 811 Productions, a Film and Television Production Company that specializes in propelling independent projects to the big screen such as Fishnets. As she is passionate about those affected by human and sex trafficking, Darnice plans to open the Dunamis Home in August of 2021 to provide a safe and stable living environment for displaced young women seeking to escape from sex trafficking. Darnice lives with the motto, “One Life Changed, One Family Saved.”
