I Am Still Here - I Will Tell Festival
10-year old Layla is stolen from her family and thrown into America’s child sex industry. Rescued after she was left for dead, she confronts the monsters of her past and embraces the hope of her future. Followed by a post-screening Q&A.
Based on true stories of courage drawn from interviews with trafficking survivors, I AM STILL HERE puts a human face on the modern day atrocity of human sex trafficking in the West, especially the trafficking of children as young as five years, giving an inside look at the devastation these children face on a daily basis and the incredible power of friendship in the midst of adversity and of the will to live and to overcome.
