Film star Ananda Everingham, a long-time supporter and official ambassador of the MTV EXIT campaign, hosts the new half-hour documentary raising awareness about human trafficking.
Speaking at the press conference, Ananda said it was an honour to continue his involvement with such an important campaign and he hopes the documentary will stir meaningful conversations among youth about how we are all affected by this tragic form of modern day slavery.
Enslaved: An MTV EXIT Special is the first in a series of twelve different documentaries to launch across Asia throughout this year. Each program will feature locally specific human trafficking stories highlighting current and emerging trafficking trends, and what’s being done to combat the exploitation of human beings.
Enslaved tells the stories of real people affected by the human trafficking trade in Thailand: Gai, a Thai woman trafficked to Japan as a forced sex worker; Vannak a young man from Cambodia trafficked for labour onto a Thai fishing vessel; and Vatsana, a Laotian woman trafficked to Thailand and forced to work as a domestic slave for 16 years in a Bangkok home.
Enslaved will premiere on Thailand’s MCOT Ch. 9 in three parts starting from Saturday 18th June, then Sunday 19th June and Monday 20th June at 11am.
Full program will broadcast on MCOT Ch. 9, Tuesday 5th July, 11:00pm. (Full program will also be featured on our website on the same day)
MTV EXIT will also host a free outdoor concert on Saturday 25th June at Chiang Mai’s 700th Anniversary Stadium. Headlining international artists include Asian megastars Super Junior M and Australian pop star Kate Miller-Heidke, who will also be supported by Thailand’s top artists.
