London Olympics:Film exposing trafficking opens in London

On eve of 2012 Summer Olympics, an award winning film exposing the global trafficking of women comes to London.

Nefarious: Merchant of Souls, will hold its London premiere on June 26, just weeks before the Olympic games begin. The screening will also feature an expert panel discussion to build awareness about sex trafficking.

Organisers fear the already growing industry will benefit from the Olympics.


According to the United Nations, Human Trafficking is the world’s fastest growing criminal industry, second only to drugs.

Between 100,000 and 800,000 people are trafficked into the European Union each year.

Organisers say of the film:

From the very first scene, Nefarious: Merchant of Souls ushers you into the nightmare of sex slavery that hundreds of thousands experience daily.

But it is also a film that galvanizes hope and vision through the gripping and triumphant testimonies from survivors of trafficking. Moreover, it provides case studies that yield practical strategies to abolish human trafficking.

Movie Guide calls it: “One of the most powerful, compelling and transformational documentaries ever made.”

A grassroots screening effort brought the film to over 30,000 people including a screening at the U.N. headquarters in New York City to reform global laws.

An Australia tour of the film culminated in screenings before each state in the Australian Parliament, to initiate legislation.

Exodus Cry, an international anti-trafficking organisation, will host the London Premiere of Nefarious: Merchant of Souls June 26 at the Vue West End, Leicester Square at 6:30 p.m.
