Movie screening: Not My Life
Tuesday, October 25th, 2016. 17:30 - 19:30
The Society of International Affairs in Gothenburg in co-operation with Worldwide Documentaries, Inc. welcomes you to the screening of the documentary NOT MY LIFE.
Filmed on five continents, in a dozen countries, Not My Life takes viewers into a world where millions of children are exploited, every day, through an astonishing array of practices including forced labor, domestic servitude, begging, sex tourism, sexual violence, and child soldiering.
“Human traffickers are earning billions of dollars on the backs and in the beds of our children,” says the film’s director, Academy Award nominee, Robert Bilheimer, “and yet no one knows this is happening. We have a huge responsibility, right now, to learn the truth and act on it.”
Challenging though it may be, Not My Life’s message is ultimately one of hope. Victims of slavery can be set free and go on to live happy and productive lives. Those who advocate for slavery victims are growing in numbers, and are increasingly effective. At this crossroads for the defining human rights issue of our time, Not My Life tells us, as the late Jonathan Mann said, “We can no longer flee, no longer hide, no longer separate ourselves.”
The screening is free and open to everyone. After the screening there will be an opportunity to discuss the movie so we hope that you will stay for that too!
