A film about slavery in our time. A story about the way the world is.

Tomorrow sees the screening of Not My Life

“Not My Life is the first documentary film to depict the
horrifying and dangerous practices of human trafficking and modern
slavery on a global scale.

Filmed on five continents over a period of four years, Not My Life
unflinchingly, but with enormous dignity and compassion, depicts the
unspeakable practices of a multi-billion dollar global industry whose
profits, as the film's narration says, “are built on the backs and in
the beds of our planet's youth.”

While acknowledging that trafficking and slavery are universal crimes, affecting millions of human beings all over the world, Not My Life
zeroes in on the fact that the vast majority of trafficking and slavery
victims are indeed children. This fundamental truth, says the film's
director, Oscar� nominee Robert Bilheimer, raises profound questions
about the very nature of our civilization. “What kind of society
cannibalizes its own children?” Bilheimer asks. “Can we do these sorts
of things on such a large scale and still call ourselves human in any
meaningful sense of the term?”
