I have mentioned a few times in the past about the heinous sex trafficking that is going on around the world, especially in Cambodia. A filmmaker by the name of Guy Jacobson has created a film entitled ‘Redlight’.
Per the Vimeo page: “Narrated by Lucy Liu, REDLIGHT is a powerful feature documentary about child sexploitation, an epidemic happening in every country around the world. Filmed over a four year period, REDLIGHT focuses on the personal stories of young Cambodian victims and two remarkable advocates for change: grass-roots activist Somaly Mam and politician Mu Sochua. Both have since been nominated for the Noble Peace Prize. The filmmakers Guy Jacobson and Adi Ezroni won the prestigious Global Hero Award for their work in Cambodia.”
The Huffington Post has an article written on behalf of the movie, as the author details how the “staggering figure of 2.5 million children aged 18 months to 18 years exploited for their young bodies made his skin crawl. They can be raped 20 – 30 times a day, and up to half of them will die from shock, torture, drugs, and/or AIDS.”
The trailer is below, and perfectly narrated by Lucy Liu. Please have a look.
