About the Film:
UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Lucy Liu produced and narrated REDLIGHT, an inspiring and powerful feature documentary about child sexploitation. Filmed over a four year period, REDLIGHT focuses on the personal stories of the victims and two remarkable advocates for change: grass-roots activist Somaly Mam and politician Mu Sochua. Both have since been nominated for the Noble Peace Prize and won other numerous human rights awards around the world. For more information about the film, visit http://www.redlightthemovie.com
Human trafficking is a brutal and horrific reality.
We hope you will support our efforts in the fight against this global epidemic.
