Free “Horse and Rider” Movie Event
Date(s) - 28 Sep 2013
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Florida Hospital Church
Florida Hospital Church, Orlando, Florida will take you on a free journey of two survivors of the underage sex trafficking ring in India; living between rescue and restoration. Many independent filmmakers and activists are turning their attention to human trafficking, the modern-day slavery that is practiced by nearly every country in the world. “Horse and Rider: A Journey Towards Freedom” is a non-conventional look into an industry that is radically growing. The film was shot in 2011 on location in India. This documentary traces the memories of two survivors of child trafficking who have become friends in an aftercare program run by Freedom Firm. There, the two friends study multiple languages, earn money making jewelry and helping local disabled children using horse therapy. Award-winning Director Ben Stamper draws heavily upon monumental cinematography and a lush musical score. He uses this to explore the complexities of rescuing minors from brothels and their subsequent journey of restoration into a society largely intolerant of women who have been sexually exploited. Horse & Rider is a documentary that presents the tragic and the heroic dimensions of the human condition with an imaginative lyricism and beauty.
