Pearl Gluck, Filmmaker

Pearl Gluck has stories to tell, including her own. As a filmmaker she's been doing so for 20 years.

And now, "The Turn Out," Pearl's first full-length feature which explores sex trafficking at rural truck stops. Pearl shares her personal and professional journeys in this open, honest, heart-warming conversation.
