Peacekeeping; and The Filmmaker and The Organ Trader at Wales Millennium Centre 2018
Asking4It Productions present the world premiére of two original mini operas for a mad age; exploring slavery, the sex-trade and human trafficking.
Bought, sold, filmed, exhausted, transplanted and sold again. Is equality ever possible while men pay women for sex?
People are selling organs to survive. Children are being kidnapped. Refugees and displaced people are at risk from traffickers and brokers.
Who does your body belong to?
