Not My Life probes the dark, hidden, and often unspeakable realities of human trafficking and modern-day slavery-- multi-billion dollar global industries that earn their profits, as the film’s narration says, “on the backs and in the beds of our planet’s youth.” It is impossible to spend four years among the victims and survivors of these crimes-- virtually all of them children-- and emerge with anything other than a sense of sheer and utter horror. What kind of civilization cannibalizes its own children? How have we arrived at the levels of cruelty that modern slavery represents? How can these crimes go unpunished?
In his time, confronting human-on-human violence, Abraham Lincoln wrote: If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong.
At the end of the screening, there will be a short Q&A with Sean Wrench, Executive Director of Forsaken Generation to discuss you how can impact the issue of human trafficking in your local community.
