Public encouraged to attend human trafficking movie coming in May
By Joyce Thomas|
GFWC North Myrtle Beach Woman’s Club will host a presentation of the movie “Sold” at the Carmike 12 Theatre at 10177 N. Kings Hwy. in Myrtle Beach on Wednesday, May 3 from 6:30 to 8:15 p.m. The club is bringing the movie to this area to bring awareness about human trafficking.
The public is invited to attend this exclusive, one-night only showing of this insightful and chilling movie, based on the international bestselling novel by Patricia McCormick and inspired by true accounts. This is the story of a young girl who journeys from a rural village in Nepal to a gritty brothel-prison in India.
The film illustrates the brutality of child trafficking, which affects millions of children around the globe every year. Globally the average age of a trafficked girl is thirteen. GFWC-NMBWC hopes this will be a call to action and educate viewers to address the crime locally and nationally. Learn about the movie at www.tugg.com/titles/sold.
Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased online at www.tugg.com/events/sold-nltf. The deadline for ticket purchase is April 26.
