Written, Directed & Produced: Ruth Beni
The Secret Gardeners, produced by Animage Films and created by Oscar-nominated illustrator Erica Russell, is based on the real life experiences of the boys and girls from ECPAT UK’s work in fighting child trafficking. It depicts what is now one of the most common forms of exploitation in the UK – children exploited in cannabis factories. The film, which will launch in Vietnam later this year, aims to educate those working with young people in the UK about the rights of victims of trafficking. It will also help to raise public awareness of the abuse of children in drug supply chains.
