Coming 2017

The harrowing and uplifting stories of trafficking and rescues at a girls’ shelter in Thailand, start to come apart as the filmmakers question the girls and the shelter’s founder.

“The Wrong Light” plays like a film noir set in the tropics.

Impact


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.
