Human trafficking is subject of films
8:50am Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
THREE films highlighting the extent of human trafficking in the UK will be screened next week.
On Monday, October 21, at 7.30pm at St Joseph’s Catholic College, in Ocotal Way, three films shortlisted in the Unchosen charity’s Human Trafficking Short Film Competition will be shown.
The event, funded by a grant from Police and Crime Commissioner Angus Macpherson, is free and open to everyone.
More than 60 filmmakers entered the inaugural competition and the films, based on real-life cases, are now touring the UK and Ireland to show what slavery looks like in the 21st Century.
The films will be followed by a question and answer session with a panel including the director of the film Nicu, a story about a nine-year-old boy trafficked from Romania and left to roam the streets of London fending for himself.
Other guests include Rob Findlay, a detective sergeant with Wiltshire Police dealing with human trafficking and exploitation in the intelligence unit, Amanda Wilsdon, a trafficking and grooming coordinator, at Gloucester domestic violence support and advocacy project and Debbie Beadle, a youth programme coordinator for ECPAT UK.
