BASE ACCESS REQUIRED: Join Alaska World Affairs Council at Fort Richardson Frontier Theater for a screening of Not My Life, a documentary highlighting victims of modern day slavery and human trafficking. The film will last 30 minutes with a 30 minute human trafficking panel discussion immediately following.

ON BASE: This program is open to any individual with base access. Unfortunately, AKWorld cannot assist anyone with base access. Not My Life will take place at the Frontier Theatre- Building 2 Fort Richardson, AK 99505.

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, domestic servitude, begging, sex tourism, sexual violence, and child soldiering.

“Human traffickers are earning billions of dollars on the backs and in the beds of our children,” says the film’s director, Academy Award nominee, Robert Bilheimer, “and yet no one knows this is happening. We have a huge responsibility, right now, to learn the truth and act on it.”

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.”
