Join SlaveFree Madison in welcoming documentary filmmaker Rebecca Dorrill to our March meeting. Dorrill will discuss her film All About the Money.
It’s vaguely covered in the media. It’s the cause of the moment. It sounds like something that wouldn’t happen here. But what exactly is human trafficking? Does the term refer to labor or sexual exploitation? How prevalent is it locally? And since we are no longer living in an era of legal slavery, why don't individuals simply escape from their traffickers?
These are some of the questions examined by service providers, law enforcement and survivors of human trafficking in All About the Money. From activists in St. Louis to a repentant trafficker in South Africa, this film exposes the shameful global practice of tricking, coercing and forcing individuals into labor and sex slavery for the sake of making a profit.
Join SlaveFree Madison for what promises to be an interesting look into the issue of human trafficking and the making of a film on the subject.
