The Scarlet Cord Film premiered at the Grand Rapids Public Museum in partnership with Women At Risk International this past week. The film, shot in Phoenix during the 2015 Super Bowl, helps raise awareness for children tethered in modern day slavery. Viewers gave an energetic response. The evening was an enormous success!
Here’s what some of the viewers had to say:
The film really brought out the idea of how these bonds hold tight, even if they are not physical bonds, but emotional ones. Its only by advocacy thru education, speaking out, and taking a stand, that these bonds can be broken. Beautifully done! Aaron
Powerful! I’m here tonight because my 15-year-old son walked through The Scarlet Cord at ArtPrize last fall; this was the piece that impacted him the most. He came home talking about it. Thank you.
What does it take to get this message into the 6th grade and middle schools? Kids often know things.
Unbelievable. Heart wrenching. Kay
Very compelling and an excellent way to show the severity of human trafficking, It would be great to see this made into a film for the masses to see at the theaters. Tammy
