SCHEDULE
All non-English language movies are subtitled in English.

VERY YOUNG GIRLS (July 5) is an exposé of the commercial sexual exploitation of girls in New York City as they are sold on the streets by pimps and treated as adult criminals by police. It takes us into the work of Rachel Lloyd, a sexually-exploited youth-turned-activist, who started the New York City organization GEMS (Girls Educational and Mentoring Services) to help victimized young women escape their pimps and find another way of life. The screening will be followed by a Q & A with Janice Holzman, Director of Communications and Development for GEMS.
(Directed by David Schisgall and Nina Alvarez (2008); 83 minutes; DVD; English)

LOS HEREDEROS (The Inheritors) (July 12) is a highly-praised Mexican documentary that immerses us in the daily lives of families who survive only by their unrelenting labor. The indelible impression conveyed by The Inheritors, in which everyone - from the frailest elders to the smallest of toddlers - must work, reveals how the cycle of poverty is passed on, from one generation to another. The Inheritors screens at Anthology Film Archives, September 9-15, 2011. For more information, visit www.anthologyfilmarchives.org.
(Directed by Eugenio Polgovsky (2008); 90 minutes; DVCam; Spanish)

STOLEN (July 19) is an award-winning documentary film that uncovers slavery in the Polisario Refugee Camps in the Moroccan-controlled Western Sahara. The story follows a Saharawi refugee separated from her mother, since she was a toddler, and reunited through a UN family reunion program. The screening will be followed by a Skype Q & A with the directors.
(Directed by Violeta Ayala and Dan Fallshaw (2009); 77 minutes; HDCam; Spanish, English and Hassaniya)

GHOSTS (July 26) tells the story of Ai Qin, an illegal immigrant who is smuggled to the United Kingdom so she can support her son and family in China. Re-enacting the events leading up to the Morecambe Bay tragedy of 2004 - in which a gang of Chinese cockle-pickers found themselves trapped by the fast-moving tide - Ghosts employs non-professional actors, hand-held cameras, natural light and true-life locations. The screening will be followed by a talk with Patrick Radden Keefe, author of The Snakehead: An Epic Tale of the Chinatown Underworld and the American Dream.
(Directed by Nick Broomfield (2007); 96 minutes; DVD; Mandarin)
