Upcoming film on modern slavery

Yesterday I learned of a documentary set be released this fall that will expose the horrors of modern-day slavery. The creator of the film, Justin Dillon, a musician, was touring in Russia and witnessed first-hand the reality of human trafficking. He met young girls whose dreams of coming west were being preyed on by sex traffickers. He came back to the US and started recruiting other musicians to raise their voices on behalf of this tragedy. It worked. Backing him are Imogen Heap, Moby, Five for Fighting, Switchfoot, Natasha Bedingfield, Matisyahu, and others. Also contributing to the film are Gary Haugen, president of International Justice Mission, Dr. Kevin Bales, author of Disposable People, and David Batstone, author of Nor For Sale.

The film is titled Call + Response. Check out the website and watch a trailer here.
