Join us on October 8th at Foley Square in New York City for the advanced screening of select scenes from “Cargo” during the NYC Freedom Walk 2011, an annual rally against human trafficking organized by Human Trafficking Awareness Council. We will be talking about the film and discussing how art can be used to draw the attention of mainstream media to the grim reality of the sex trade.
We are excited to announce that “Cargo” is finally about to hit the screen. We will open at Quad Cinema in Greenwich Village for a week-long theatrical run on October 21st. Advanced tickets are now available on movietickets.com.

As part of our collaboration with this remarkable organization, “Cargo” will screen for students at George Washington University as well as The Elliott School of International Affairs.
We truly appreciate FAIR Fund’s support and admire all the hard work they’ve been doing to prevent human trafficking in the USA and around the world. FAIR Fund builds the capacity of communities to better identify and assist youth, aged 11 to 24, who are at high risk or have been exploited by human trafficking and sexual violence. FAIR Fund has active programs in Bosnia, Chicago, Illinois, Serbia, Russia, Washington, D.C, and Uganda.
