SPREADING AWARENESS: BITAHR'S HUMAN RIGHTS AND SEX TRAFFICKING FILM FORUM 2010
A documentary film by Nicole Mendonez
Sex Trafficking, 2010
Every year thousands of foreigners and Americans are trafficked within the United States. The Boston Initiative to Advance Human Rights Film Forum in December of 2010 functioned as a creative avenue to spreading awareness. This Harvard Square Brattle Theater event drew a large audience, including experts in the field, local students, and curious bystanders. The Film Forum screened numerous documentaries and films that focused on the behind the scenes of human trafficking and the personal stories of victims. Filming this event helped me further understand human trafficking on an educational and personal level. Hopefully, Spreading Awareness will bring that same understanding to viewers and motivate change.
