The Women’s Human Rights Film Series, presented by The Advocates for Human Rights and The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library, screens Playground, Libby Spears’ sensitive investigation into the world-wide issue of the sexual exploitation of children.

Executive produced by George Clooney, Grant Heslov, and Steven Soderbergh, and punctuated with poignant animation by Japanese pop artist Yoshitomo Nara, Playground illuminates a sinister industry of unrecognized pervasiveness. Spears has crafted a comprehensive revelation of an unknown epidemic, essential viewing for any parent or engaged citizen.

A panel discussion follows the film with Justice Helen Meyer, Michele Garnet-McKenzie, Advocacy Director at The Advocates for Human Rights, and Artika Roller, PRIDE Program Director at The Family Partnership. Cosponsored by ECPAT/USA (End Child Prostitution and Trafficking).
