A documentary film by Guillaume Suon

Synopsis from Les jeudis du FIFDH Paris:

According to the UN, more than 200,000 Cambodians were sold as slaves in several countries in Southeast Asia such as Thailand or Malaysia. Aya is one of them. Peasant girl, she was enslaved to 16 years after being sold to a Malaysian agency to be a cleaner. Beaten and exploited for two years, she ran away and came back home, just as poor and more isolated as at her departure. Along with her history, the documentary follows two human traffickers - those that Cambodians call "Mey Kechol": "The Storm makers: those who bring the storm."

The next screening will be at 20h on Thursday, March 5, 2015 at cinema Luminor Town Hall (formerly Le Nouveau Latina) around the documentary The Storm Makers: those who bring the storm, on the occasion of ‘FIFDH Thursdays of Paris’. The screening will be followed by a discussion with the director Guillaume Suon and Geneviève Colas, Head of trafficking in Secours Catholique and coordinator of the Collective "Together against trafficking in human beings."
