Law Centre anti-traffficking story wins film award
The film based on a composite trafficking story supplied by our Young People Anti-Trafficking Project has won the overall award in the Unchosen film festival.
Congratulations to Tim Keeking, the director of this excellent short film. We are delighted to have been chosen by judges who include no less than Ken Loach!
On a serious note, this is great awareness raising for the issues involved, the misery caused, and the important work that is being done to help people free themselves from modern slavery and hopefully move on with their lives. Although the story was transposed to an English setting for the purposes of the film, it is based on situations that are happening here in Northern Ireland, and that we have encountered in our work.
