An engrossing cautionary tale

– Daniel Gold, The New York Times

[A] prismatic, thought-sparking documentary.

Chris Barsanti , Film Journal International

Some filmmakers would have decided to dismiss their discomfort…Adams and Swantek do something much more interesting, keeping the audience with them as they flounder around trying to make sense of what has happened and navigate an ethical minefield…. 

A truly eye-opening documentary which challenges a lot of our most dearly held beliefs about charity, The Wrong Light illustrates how unexamined prejudice and genuine cultural difference can combine to help conceal the activities of those who see global inequality as a hotbed of opportunity.

– Jennie Kermode, Eye for Film


In The Wrong Light, a charismatic activist leads a globally-regarded NGO that provides shelter and education for girls rescued from brothels in Northern Thailand. But as the filmmakers meet the girls and their families, discrepancies begin to emerge and the story takes an unexpected turn.
