Thank you! “Sold the movie” with Cine-Onu and Time For Equality

Our combined talent, expertise, passion and commitment have made the CINE ONU / Time For Equality screening of SOLD a successful awareness-raising event.  We have received many positive comments and reactions and it is all because of you – the wonderful audience and all contributors.  THANK YOU!

To the team at SOLD the movie and Director Jeffrey D. Brown, for being the storyteller, and bringing the important topic of the trafficking and sexual abuse of children to the screen, and also for taking the time from London to introduce and share your perspectives with the audience in Luxembourg.

To the panel – If only we had more time – the breadth and depth of knowledge of our panelists: Irene Wintermayr (ILO Office for the EU and Benelux countries); Fabienne Rossler (Commission Consultative des Droits de l’Homme du G-D Luxembourg (CCDH); and Thomas Kauffmann (ECPAT Luxembourg), who gave us an insight into the global and local reality of human trafficking and children’s rights, was so well presented and insightful and left us wanting to discuss more.

For the support of:

UNRIC – Karen Davies and Christophe Verhellen, for the CINE ONU format;

Red Sand Project – Molly Gochman and Lizzie Horne for supplying their concept and bags of red sand;

International Labour Organisation, for their gracious sponsorship and to the team at the ILO Office for the EU and Benelux countries for support and the “50 for Freedom” campaign and documentation;

Raoul Somers – Photography Raoul Somers, for the wonderful photo reportage.

Last but not least, an event like this can only be successful with the help of the many individuals who have contributed behind the scenes:

On Site Team – Reception – Giovanna Agnello, Giorgiana Medeea, Vilma Loogman; Video – Trevor Low; Red Sand Display – Larissa Ruhstaller, Ginny Ruhstaller

Publicity & design –Dario Brignone

Screening licence and support – Nicole Askeland and the team at Simple Cinema and Rocofilms.

Venue – Kinepolis; Amandine Schosseler and the team at Utopia Limpertsberg.

We hope you will appreciate and use the follow-up and photo reportage of the event to keep inspired and share awareness on human trafficking and children’s rights.  Please feel free to share the link in your respective media sites, newsletters and personal social media, and don’t forget to share and post a photo of your Red Sand project on the Time For Equality Facebook page.

We believe that EVERY small action counts –like the small insect buzzing in your room making it difficult to sleep – we may not let society sleep!

Thank you for being a part of this event and we look forward to continued collaboration.

Rosa Brignone and Karen Wauters

    Modern slavery is all around us, even though most of us do not even realise it. 21 million women, men and children are trapped in slavery, three out of every 1,000 people worldwide. 4.5 million are victims of sexual exploitation.
