UNICEF presents Not My Life

12 Nov

Not My Life is an independent documentary supported by UNICEF and other partners. Produced by Oscar-nominated Director Robert Bilheimer, the documentary genuinely portrays the cruelty of child exploitation worldwide, with victims and survivors recalling horrors they have experienced. The film hopes to reflect trafficking’s unspeakable realities and stimulate public consciousness and debate.

The screening of Not My Life will be followed by the Award Presentation Ceremony for the “Believe In Zero, Make A Video” Competition. Organised by UNICEF HK and Academy of Film, Hong Kong Baptist University, the competition invited young people to use video as a platform to highlight the child survival issues they concerned most, and suggest ways that can motivate everyone to achieve Zero Suffering for children.

Date: 18 November 2012 (Sunday)

Time: 2-4pm

Location: Lecture Room AAB201, Academic and Administration Building, Hong Kong Baptist University, 15 Baptist University Road

Admission to the event is free. Seats are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. To reserve seats, please email your contact name, contact number and number of seats you would like to reserve to edu@unicef.org.hk by 16 November 2012 noon.

UNICEF, United Nation’s Children’s Fund, is the world’s leading UN organization working specifically for children. Since their establishment in 1946, they have been working with other UN agencies, governments and NGOs to ensure children’s rights in survival, development, protection and participation. UNICEF was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1965 for its efforts and contributions to children worldwide. UNICEF is now working in over 150 countries, areas and territories to provide emergency relief and run long-term development programmes such as health, education and child protection. Over 86% of UNICEF staff work in the field and more than 90% donations are spent in UNICEF‘s field programmes. UNICEF receives no funding from the United Nations, and relies on people like you to help build a world fit for children.
