Opens in NYC July 14th and in LA July 21st
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.
The Wrong Light explores the exploitation and misrepresentation of young girls in Thailand. The outreach and engagement work will explore the broader issues of exploitation and lack of transparency at all levels of the global aid system. The campaign will support a shift in how journalists, the wider media, non-profit organizations, individual donors, fundraisers, decision-makers in the global aid and development industry, and documentary filmmakers understand and work towards narrative authenticity and integrity.
