Your story takes viewers right inside red-light districts and brothels. Were prostitutes or their clients upset by having you nearby?
The prostitutes seemed fine; the clients, of course, were not fine! It took me months to actually gain access to the red-light district, and we only filmed in the district for three weeks -- much of that time was downtime as we negotiated further access.
What did men tell you about why they don't wear condoms? But most of the men I spoke to as they were visiting brothels said they saw no relationship between wearing a condom and preventing HIV and AIDS. Although I've heard this is changing, especially in Kolkata.
In Sonagachi, Calcutta, the other red-light district you profile in your piece, the sex workers run the show, demanding that clients wear condoms in an effort to stop the spread of AIDS. Well, I don't think all sex workers can say "no condoms, no sex," but if they're able to anywhere in India, it does seem to be more possible in Kolkata.
In Kolkata, many of the girls are born into it -- and while they have no choice but to be sex workers, there's a different level of respect.
Some have described Kamathipura, the red-light district in Bombay [also known as Mumbai], as the "fleshy center of India's HIV time bomb." Can you talk about sex workers and the conditions they face in Bombay? In Kolkata [Calcutta], there is a sex worker union that is fighting for the right to be legal.
