She Has a Name
On Friday night, there will be a movie screening of this gritty, critically-acclaimed, made-in-Alberta film, followed by a Q&A with the film's director, Matthew Kooman!
Based on true events, the movie tells the story of Jason, a lawyer, posing as a john to build a legal case against a ruthless pimp trafficking girls into Thailand. He meets Number 18, a girl forced to work as a prostitute in a busy Bangkok bar, only to discover that her testimony is key to proving his case. Can he convince her to risk her life to testify for the sake of justice?
She Has A Name explores the global corruption that allows for human sex trafficking across borders and enables criminals to thrive off of this industry. A global cast and crew, who collectively represent no less than 10 different nations, came together to make the film and raise awareness on the prevalence of sex trafficking throughout the world.
