Break the Chain: Documentary About Human Trafficking
Produced and Directed by Michigan documentary filmmakers, Laura E. Swanson and Kirk Mason, Break the Chain is an award-winning feature-length documentary film that addresses the often hidden-in-plain-sight issue of Human Trafficking within Michigan communities and the United States. The film chronicles two survivors of Human Trafficking, providing a detailed look at how trafficking goes unnoticed within our backyards. Kwami, a child survivor of Labor Trafficking, was enslaved for nearly five years with three other children in Ypsilanti, Michigan before anyone noticed. Debbie, a survivor of Sex Trafficking, takes us through her experience of being sold for sex around the Detroit-Area between the ages of 13 and 18. Accompanying the stories of these survivors are nearly 20 interviews with researchers, Senators, non-profit organizations, legal service agencies, law enforcement officers and several artists actively working to raise awareness for this global issue. The film teaches us that what we see in the media about human trafficking is one small sensationalized form -- that it occurs anywhere and everywhere within our world. See it at the Atlas Performing Arts Center. There'll also be a pre-show meet-and-greet with film co-director, Laura Swanson.
