Friday, September 30th Cineculture presents Fatal Promises with discussant: Anneliese Rohrer (the producer). Through personal stories of victims and interviews with politicians, NGO representatives and activists, Fatal Promises provides a comprehensive look at the realities of human trafficking versus the rhetoric of politicians and pundits who claim to be making significant strides in combating this horrific crime against humanity.
Ukraine, the second largest country in Europe, is a prime example of a nation struggling to establish a stable economy, a functioning legal system and to control criminal enterprises of which Human Trafficking is the largest. Over the years, hundreds of thousands of women, children and men have been trafficked from Ukraine to the United States, Western Europe and the Balkans since the fall of the Soviet Union.
The screening starts at 5:30 p.m. in Peter’s Education Center (Student Recreation Center west of Save-Mart Center). For more information go to cineculture.csufresno.edu, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
