> 
> About Not My Life: 
> Not My Life is a feature-length documentary film about modern-day slavery and global human trafficking, dangerous and horrifying practices that affect millions of children, women, and men in every part of the world. 
> 
> Specific aspects of this emerging issue-- especially female sexual trafficking-- are to some degree being addressed in books, news stories, television reports, and fiction and non-fiction films. To date, however, there is no single communications tool that effectively depicts the problem as a whole for a mass audience. The rationale for Not My Life is that until such a tool is created and widely used, the general public will remain uninformed and indifferent, and a problem that is already very bad will only get worse.
> 
> Not My Life follows the release, in 2003, of A Closer Walk, the acclaimed documentary about global AIDS produced and directed by Oscar nominee Robert Bilheimer, President of Worldwide Documentaries, a not-for-profit film production company focusing on subjects of social, cultural, and humanitarian concern. A Closer Walk has been seen by more than 300 million people around the world, and has had an impact on AIDS awareness that is proving to be unprecedented and historic. Funders for A Closer Walk included the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and General Motors. 
> 
> Like A Closer Walk, the ultimate intent of Not My Life is to provide insight into the way the world is. Modern-day slavery thrives along transnational fault lines of extreme poverty, social injustice, political unrest, and acts of violence and deprivation that are morally indefensible and dangerous in the extreme. Insofar as it depicts a world in which millions of human beings-- the vast majority of them children-- have become disposable commodities, Not My Life is, first and foremost, a cautionary tale: slavery and trafficking, and the corrupt or complacent systems in which they thrive and operate, undermine virtually every aspect of our collective well-being. These include, but are not limited to, our security, health, economic stability, and moral viability as a global community. 
> Not My Life was filmed in North and South America, Europe, Southeast Asia, India, and Africa. Pre-production began in January 2006. Production has been underway since early 2007, and was completed in June of 2010. The film's world premiere was held in New York City at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall on January 19th , 2011. 
> 
> After the film, join us for Q & A with Robert Bilheimer, Director of "Not My Life" and Rochester native, and Andra Ackerman, Deputy Chief, Special Victims Trial Division, Monroe County District Attorney's Office.
