New in 2016 from Director Amy Oden and Back of the Room Productions, Exotic documents migrant labor practices in the adult entertainment industry in Guam. Using the island's strip clubs and massage parlors as a lens through which to explore U.S. militarization, immigration, and race and discrimination, Exotic helps audiences understand the link between labor rights abuses and sex trafficking.

Exotic is presented in Ann Arbor through a partnership between the University of Michigan's Gender-Based Violence and Engaged Learning group (GEL) and the community partner organization, the Michigan Sex Workers Outreach Project (SWOP Michigan). This event is made possible by generous sponsorships from the U-M Institute for Research on Women and Gender (IRWG) and the Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS).  

Free and open to the public. Seating is first come first served. Doors open at 6:30pm.
