EWL representatives set to discuss prostitution and trafficking on occasion on Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery

[Brussels, 05 April 2011] EWL staff member Pierrette Pape and representative of the EWL member organisation MONA Foundation for the
Women of Hungary), Andrea Matolcsi, will give a question and answer session following the screening next week of the documentary Redlight, touching on the issues of prostitution and trafficking. The screening is organised on the occasion of the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery by the United Nations in partnership with the Goethe Institute and will take place in Brussels.

The documentary Redlight, directed by Guy Jacobson
and Adi Ezroni, set in Cambodia, tells the story
of Sokha, kidnapped and forced to work in a
brothel, and her brave sister Reena; of Srey Preuv,
who has been sold by her mother and of other trafficking
victims. Mu Sochua and Somaly Mam, two
women who have experienced violence themselves
in their lives, are fighting for justice. It is too easy
for criminals to buy their way out of a trial or out of
prison. And as the case of Srey shows, sometimes
even the families of the victims don’t protect them.
The filmmakers Guy Jacobson and Adi Ezroni won
the prestigious Global Hero Award for their work in
Cambodia. To make this film possible, Guy hired 40
bodyguards with automatic machine guns to protect
his film crew and then ventured into the most dangerous
parts of Cambodia’s Red Light District, even
shooting scenes inside the brothels.
