Submitted by Alexandria Kieffaber
K-State's Freedom Alliance, an official student organization, will host a human trafficking awareness film screening of "Nefarious: Merchant of Souls" at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 7, Forum Hall at the K-State Student Union.
This week, April 6-10, the group is also hosting a supply drive for homeless/trafficked youth in Kansas and items can be dropped off at the film screening.
"Nefarious: Merchant of Souls" is a hard-hitting documentary that exposes the disturbing trends of modern-day sex slavery. From the first scene, "Nefarious" gives an in-depth look at the human trafficking industry, showing where slaves are sold — often in developed, affluent countries — where they work, and where they are confined.
With footage shot in more than 19 different countries, "Nefarious" exposes the nightmare of sex slavery, as experienced by hundreds of thousands daily, through the eyes of both the enslaved and their traffickers. "Nefarious" features expert analysis from international humanitarian leaders, and captures the gripping and triumphant testimonies of survivors in order to galvanize hope and vision.
From initial recruitment to victim liberation — and everything in between — the previously veiled underworld of sex slavery is uncovered in the groundbreaking, tell-all "Nefarious: Merchant of Souls."
This film was created by the nonprofit group Exodus Cry.
