Canadian film on global sex trade screens in Langley

Trinity Western University is showing the film She Has a Name on Jan. 28.

Trinity Western University is hosting a Saturday evening screening of the film She Has a Name, about the global trade in human sex slaves.

A talkback with director Daniel Kooman, and actors Giovanni Mocibob and Holly Pillsbury will follow the film.

She Has A Name is a based on a real event in 2008, when a locked, abandoned storage container was found in Thailand, containing 121 workers from Burma, 54 of whom were dead. The film is based on the critically acclaimed stage play by Andrew Kooman.

The global sex trade industry makes $40 billion a year selling women, children, and men as much as 15 times a day for their bodies. Of the two million people the UN reports are exploited in the commercial sex trade every year, less than per cent are rescued, according to the filmmakers.

The local screening is Jan. 28 at 7 p.m. in the Northwest Building on the TWU campus.

The film is rated 14A and is hosted by the School of Arts, Media + Culture, and the TWU Gender Studies Institute.

Tickets are available at brownpapertickets.ca (event 2811287) or at the door for cash only. The cost is $15 for adults and $5 for students.
