What is the price of a human life?


Last night the uni World Vision society showed a dusk screening of Trade on campus. It was a very confronting film, horrific and uncomprendingly tragic. To be bought and sold in the human traffiking industry is, perhaps, the worst fate known to man. The film itself is very moving, extremely emotional and very, very well told.

Sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing that... I'm currently reading (well actually it's an audio book) a book on the Modern Slave Trade called Not For Sale by David Batstone. Very interesting and a real eye-opener...

Oooh. I've seen some good TV dramas about human trafficking, but no films, I think. Will keep my eyes open for this.

And yeah, it's terrible. :(

Have you heard of the film about sex slave trafficking in Melbourne, it is called The Jammed it came out in 2007? It is supposed to be really good.

Hey DF, yes I do know the film, my parents and my brother went to see it but I haven't seen it, I've heard it's very good, didn't it win a whole bunch of AFIs or something?
