EDIT
The Day My God Died: Child Sex Trade in Nepal
AIRED:
Panelists discuss emThe Day My God Diedem, a documentary about the child sex trade in Nepal. Director Andrew Levine, and Brigitte Cazalis-Collins and Joe Collins, Founders of Friends of Maiti Nepal, participate in the talk, which is introduced by Christina Bain, director of the Program on Human Trafficking and Modern-Day Slavery at the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy. In Bombay alone, 90 new cases of HIV infection are reported every hour, and the victims are getting younger: two decades ago, most women in India's brothels were in their twenties or thirties. Today, the average age is 14. Narrated by Academy Award-winning actor Tim Robbins, emThe Day My God Diedem puts a human face on these numbers as it recounts the stories of several Nepalese girls who were forced into the international child sex trade. The film provides actual footage from the brothels of Bombay, known even to tourists as "The Cages," captured with "spy camera" technology. It weaves the stories of girls, and their stolen hopes and dreams, into an unforgettable examination of the growing plague of child sex slavery.moreless
