A journey out of the heart of human trafficking
As part of the cycle “Expressions of Humanity. What kind of world do we want to live in”, Time For Equality and the Rotondes invite to the screening of EXIT – A journey out of the heart of human trafficking, – in the presence of film director Alison Jayne Wilson.
Alison Jayne Wilson is an Australian political scientist based in Spain. She has worked in the not-for-profit sector for 15 years as a communications strategist. She has worked in teams nominated for UN cultural innovation & human rights awards. Wilson made the move over to documentary film four years ago. after studying film in London and Spain. She has a soft spot for grassroots movements and is an activist contra human trafficking and sexual exploitation.
Documentaries can be catalysts for change, they can influence and build movements this is our aim with EXIT.
“I was compelled to make this film EXIT and give voice to the largely migrant women who are victims of trafficking for sexual exploitation in Spain. The film places a special emphasis on their recruitment and how this could happen to almost anyone, but we also discover how hard the recovery is for survivors of human trafficking – and the devastating reality that many don’t make it to the end. During making this film I learnt that it is their children who are the secondary victims of this crime.
Documentary films have become an integral part of social change. They can illuminate social injustices and tragedies in remote parts of the world or our own neighbourhoods.
We inform participants of our events that they may appear on photographs taken during the event. These are intended to be published in the written or digit media posted by Time For Equality and the co-organisers.
