FORCED – finalist at SIMA Awards

Our multimedia documentary, FORCED: Child Labour and Exploitation, is one of the finalists at the SIMA Social Impact Media Awards.

FORCED sets out to capture the complexity and prolific occurrence of child labour and exploitation in Bangladesh. This film takes you into the streets of Dhaka, where children form part of the visual landscape: an integrated part of the work force, they work because society accepts their fate and survival dictates their limited choices.

In the underworld of the brothels, behind closed doors, girls share their testimonies of having to work as sex slaves, bought and sold by brokers, shamed by society, with no escape.
