New documentary film entitled, Enslaved: An MTV EXIT Special, to premiere on Cambodia Television Network (CTN) on 24 March at 9 P.M.
21 MARCH 2012, PHNOM PENH: MTV EXIT (End Exploitation and Trafficking), in partnership with the Royal Cambodian Government, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Australian Government’s Agency for International Development (AusAID), and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) today announced the release of Enslaved: An MTV EXIT Special (Enslaved), a powerful documentary film that aims to raise awareness and help prevent human trafficking in Cambodia.
Enslaved gives audiences a rare glimpse into this critical social problem telling real-life stories of Cambodian human trafficking survivors: Posvak, a Cambodian woman who was trafficked to another country and forced to work as a domestic slave; Vannak, a young man from Cambodia trafficked for labour onto a Thai fishing vessel; and Chaivoeurn, a young girl from Cambodia, who was trafficked by her Aunt to Phnom Penh as a forced sex worker. MTV EXIT celebrity ambassador to Cambodia and host of Enslaved, Dr. Chea Samnang, connects these experiences to the audiences, whilst demonstrating how Cambodians can protect themselves and their families from being trafficked, and highlighting what everyone can do to help end this horrific crime.
The documentary film will premiere on Cambodia Television Network (CTN), channel 21, on 24 March 2012 at 9:00 P.M. and repeat telecast on 25 March 2012 at 9:30 A.M., as well as MYTV on March 26 at 9:30 A.M.
