A new film billed as a ‘call to action’ to raise awareness of child sex trafficking and empower survivors will premiere this month in Nottingham, UK with a screening and panel discussion with modern slavery activists, including the film’s director and one of the protagonists.


California's Forgotten Children is a feature documentary about child sex trafficking, recounting true stories of girls and boys who were commercially sexually exploited in California, and who are now survivors and courageous leaders fighting for the rights of victims worldwide.

The film highlights heroic stories from modern slavery survivors and abolitionists, giving viewers the tools and knowledge to combat this scourge and empowering a movement to support survivors on their path to freedom.

The UK premiere of the film will be followed by a panel discussion with film director Melody C. Miller; Minh Dang, Director of the Survivor Alliance; Lara Bundock, CEO of the Snowdrop Project; and Juliana Semione, University of Nottingham Rights Lab Doctoral Researcher.

The screening will be hosted by the Survivor Alliance, a non-profit organisation that unites and empowers survivors of slavery and human trafficking around the world, working with allies to ensure that survivors’ voices are central to any anti-slavery effort. 


The screening will take place on Tuesday 30th October at Broadway Cinema in Nottingham.
