Not My Life is the first film to depict the cruel and dehumanizing practices of human trafficking and modern slavery on a global scale. Filmed
on five continents, in a dozen countries, Not My Life takes viewers into a world where millions of children are exploited, every day, through an
astonishing array of practices, including forced labor, begging, sex tourism, sexual violence, and child soldiering. Challenging though it may
be, Not My Life’s message is ultimately one of hope. Victims of slavery can be set free and go on to live happy and productive lives. Those who
advocate for slavery victims are growing in numbers, and are increasingly effective. At this crossroads for the defining human rights issue of
our time, Not My Life tells us, as the late Jonathan Mann said, “We can no longer flee, no longer hide, no longer separate ourselves.”
January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention month. This film was selected to raise public awareness about these issues.
