A “weapon of change” against the global scourge of human trafficking: that’s how the director of the film that’s the focus of our latest podcast, hopes his movie that’s fuelling a movement, will be used.

SOLD is the story of one 13-year-old Nepalese girl’s journey into sexual slavery, and eventual emancipation.

One of the stars of SOLD, Gillian Anderson, the actress best-known for her role in television’s X-Files, says it’s a shining example of how “film can change the world”.

The author, actress and activist tells us that combating sex trafficking of young women and girls, has now become her number one priority when it comes to advocacy.

No country can claim to be free of trafficking, and in this latest episode of our podcast The Lid is On, we feature an interview with one survivor, who lives within a few miles of UN headquarters in New York.
