Eden

EDEN director Megan Griffiths will participate in Q&A’s after the 7:10 PM screenings at the Music Hall on Friday and Saturday, March 29 and 30.

Film Summary
Eden, a young Korean-American girl, is abducted near her home in New Mexico and forced into prostitution by a domestic human and drug trafficking ring located outside the bright lights of Las Vegas, Nevada. Throughout the two years she is held, Eden reluctantly ensures her own survival by carving out power and influence within the very organization that has imprisoned her. Inspired by a harrowing true story, EDEN peers into the darkest corners of America and attempts to discover the humanity within.

"EDEN... is nothing short of gripping." -Drew Taylor, Indiewire

"EDEN both elicits a continuous feeling of dread and hope, showing us a side of America you could not imagine existed". -Noah Lee, Film Threat

"EDEN translates a true-life tale of human trafficking into an ... arrestingly suspenseful drama.” – Joe Leydon, Variety

    Hey All. Unfortunately, I have a conflict and am confirming I will not be able to host at Eden tonight. I'm leaving the event, so if you'd like to go, please do.

    You can use the comments on meetup to find one another. See you next time!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
