Panelists discuss the film emPlaygroundem, which reveals the epidemic of child sex trafficking in America. The panel features the Director Libby Spears, Karen McLaughlin, chair of ISPAC’s Global Committee on the Prevention of Victimization and the Protection of Victims, Audrey Porter, Assistant Director and the Coordinator of Survivor Services of The My Life My Choice Project (MLMC), and ismoderated by Phillip W.D. Martin, Senior Investigative Journalist, WGBH, Boston’s NPR Station; Adjunct Faculty, Brandeis University. Spears traces the epidemic of child sex trafficking in America to its disparate, and decidedly domestic roots. Among them, the way children are educated about sex, and the problem of raising awareness about a crime that inherently cannot be shown. Her cultural observations are couched in an ongoing mystery story: the search for Michelle, an American girl lost to the underbelly of childhood sexual exploitation who has yet to resurface a decade later. Executive produced by George Clooney, Grant Heslov, and Steven Soderbergh, and punctuated with poignant animation by Japanese pop artist Yoshitomo Nara, Playground illuminates a sinister industry of unrecognized pervasiveness. Libby Spears has crafted a comprehensive revelation of an unknown epidemic, essential viewing for any parent or engaged citizen.moreless
