“Not My Life”
Presented through support of the World Affairs Councils of America

Tuesday, October 8, 2013, 5 p.m.
University of Nevada, Reno
Joe Crowley Student Union Theatre
Not My Life is the first film to comprehensively depict the cruel and dehumanizing practices of human trafficking and modern slavery on a global scale. 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 exploitation, 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.”
The film screening will begin at 5 p.m., immediately followed by a panel discussion with local experts on human trafficking in the Northern Nevada area. Refreshments and light appetizers will be served. At 7 p.m. attendees will have the opportunity to participate in an organized flash mob on the JCSU lawn to shine light on the issue of human trafficking in our community.
When: Tuesday, October 8, 2013, 5 p.m.
Where: University of Nevada, Reno, Joe Crowley Student Union Theatre
