ARCHIVE AT LUNCHTIME: SEX TRAFFIC (FREE EVENT)

Join us for FREE lunchtime screenings of films from the IFI Irish Film Archive.

This month we present some of the source films from our Archive from which extracts were used in RTÉ’s States of Fear, and four television programmes uncovering neglect and abuse. 

To mark the 15th anniversary of the broadcast of States of Fear, the Mary Raftery Journalism Fund in association with the IFI and RTÉ presents a series of films throughout the month and a day of screenings and discussions on May 24th.

SEX TRAFFIC
Introduced by Keelin Shanley.

It’s 2006 and Sex trafficking in Ireland is not illegal. The documentary traced Eastern European women who had been trafficked into Ireland. The film included chilling interviews with convicted traffickers in Romania and uncovered a Lithuanian husband and wife trafficking operation in Ireland. The broadcast of this programme helped prompt the government to amend trafficking legislation. (55 minutes, 2006, RTÉ Prime Time Investigates.)

ADDITIONAL ARCHIVE AT LUNCHTIME FILMS:
There will be free screenings of Programme 1 and Programme 2 on Mondays and Wednesdays respectively throughout May, as well as free additional RTÉ documentaries – Intellectual Disability, introduced by Keelin Shanley and Janet Traynor (May 3rd); Making Them Pay, introduced by Sheila Ahern (May 17th); and Sins of the Father, introduced by Senator Susan O’Keeffe (May 31st).

States of Fear – 15 Years On will take place at the IFI on Saturday, May 24th with screenings and panel discussions from 11.00 to 16.30.
