Description

Hark is about a man who is confronted with a moral dilemma to either continue living a self-absorbed life or to change his ways by doing the right thing.  This story draws attention to the harsh reality of human trafficking and shines light where there is darkness.  Hark is a story of hope that is intended to encourage the viewer to make a difference in our society.

There are millions of slaves in the world today, many of whom are children. Imagine your son, daughter, or loved one being trapped into slavery and treated as a sexual object. Dr. Jonathan Fung has a young daughter whom he loves more than anything. His heart breaks thinking about innocent children living such horrendous and traumatizing lives. Dr. Fung is inspired to take personal action to fight the injustice of human trafficking and spread awareness through his film Hark.

Hark plays with Don’t Shout Too Loud by Courtney Campbell. They will join Professor Felicity Schaeffer-Grabriel of UC Santa Cruz and Professor Julietta Hua of San Francisco State University for a Panel Discussion on Human Trafficking.

The film poses difficult and rarely asked questions about the human trafficking issue as seen through the efforts of public officials and activists as they race to ready themselves and the citizens of South Africa before the first match.
