Brantford Public Library
173 Colborne Street , Brantford, Ontario, N3T 2G8
As part of THE NFB IN LIBRARIES, the Brantford Public Library is offering a free screening of the documentary Avenue Zero (2009 | 52 min) :
Human trafficking is a reality: Asian girls are enslaved in suburban massage parlors; domestic workers toil like slaves in suburban homes; girls in a Montreal subway station are lured into prostitution; Vancouver gangs recruit Honduran boys to sell drugs. Featuring candid interviews with victims, witnesses and perpetrators, Avenue Zero weaves a spellbinding portrait of a dark and sinister trade flourishing in the shadows of the law.
Prior to the screening, there will be two other events on the topic of human trafficking. Please visit organiser’s website for more info : www.brantfordlibrary.ca
