On 24 November 2008, STOP THE TRAFFIK is pleased to announce the opening of the ‘We The Peoples’ Film Festival, taking place at selected venues around London.
The festival will be promoting the work of the United Nations, and other international development agencies, focussing on the three pillars of freedom: freedom from want, freedom from fear, and freedom to live in dignity.
Victims of human trafficking are sometimes deprived of all three of these freedoms. In particular, two films that will be screened during the festival will explore the deprivation of freedom undergone by victims of human trafficking. The House of Sharing, from Hein Seok tells the story of Korean women sold into slavery by the Japanese army during the Second World War; and Kidnapped Childhood, by Claes Herrlander discusses the plight of children running from kidnappers in Uganda.
Come along to the ‘We The Peoples’ Film Festival to raise awareness about international human rights, and celebrate your freedom!
