Modern Slavery [electronic resource]: Captive Servants and Child Prostitution

First Hand Films (Firm)
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
House slavery-the confinement and coercion of unpaid domestic servants-occurs far more frequently across Europe and the United States than most people realize. Even more alarming is the widespread use of children as fodder for prostitution rings around the world. This program profiles a Moroccan-born former house slave named Rania, whose father, believing she would be educated and cared for, allowed her to be taken to France at the age of eight. Viewers also meet Sino and La Thiya, Cambodian victims of Southeast Asia's rampant child sex industry. Both case studies are chilling in their accounts of deception and exploitation, yet they also convey the possibility of personal transcendence and justice.
