THE WRONG LIGHT

& ANTI-TRAFFICKING PHILANTHROPY: A CAUTIONARY TALE

In October 2015, SWAN hosted the Canadian premiere of the award-winning documentary The Wrong Light to kick off a community dialogue, "Anti-Trafficking Philantrophy: A Cautionary Tale."

WRONG LIGHT DOCUMENTARY: 

‘The Wrong Light’ tells the riveting story of a charismatic activist who leads a globally-regarded anti-trafficking NGO in Northern Thailand that provides shelter and education to young girls rescued from brothels. But as the filmmakers embed themselves at the shelter and meet the girls and their families, discrepancies begin to emerge. While the filmmakers embark search for the truth and ensure the girls’ safety, the heroic tale takes a shocking turn and reveals a dark side of child advocacy behind the trafficking headlines.
