CALL+RESPONSE is a first of its kind feature documentary film that reveals the world’s 27 million dirtiest secrets: there are more slaves today than ever before in human history. CALL+RESPONSE goes deep undercover where slavery is thriving from the child brothels of Cambodia to the slave brick kilns of rural India to reveal that in 2009, Slave Traders made more money than Google, Nike and Starbucks combined.
Performances from Grammy-winning and critically acclaimed artists including Moby, Natasha Bedingfield, Cold War Kids, Matisyahu, Imogen Heap, Talib Kweli, Five For Fighting, Switchfoot, members of Nickel Creek and Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers, Rocco Deluca move this chilling information into inspiration for stopping it.

MEDIA RELEASE: CALL+RESPONSE UNIVERSITY TOUR – OCTOBER 2010
The Issue

27 million people are enslaved today in the Sex Trafficking Industry, Forced Labour and Child
Soldiering.
Increased awareness, social and behavioural changes, as well as tangible avenues for activism
must be created to bring about a tipping point. Only when society, the consumer and the voting
public care enough about this global scourge, will elected government officials and global
corporation leaders begin to care and act to eradicate this issue.
The Film+Campaign
CALL+RESPONSE is a critically acclaimed, theatrically released, feature
rockumentary shining a spotlight on slavery in the 21st century.
Actors and activists such as Julia Ormond and Ashley Judd, award
winning musicians along with prominent luminaries such as Moby,
Natasha Bedingfield and Madeline Albright, all join the cast of this
powerfully moving film.
In addition to being a powerful film, C+R is a deeply impacting
campaign that raised funds for front line activists and created tactile
activist tools that everyone can employ. Over 250,000 people have
attending screenings in the US and Australia in theatres, schools,
nightclubs, faith communities, and just about any type of venue you
can imagine.
As well as raising over $250,000 for front line projects, these events
have elicited massive local and global action on the issue. 100% of the
film’s profits go to fund projects on the front lines of the human
slavery.
