7PM: DOCUMENTARIES - The International Labor Organization (IO) estimates that there are about 250 million economically active children worldwide. Pep Bonet’s FORCED: CHILD LABOUR AND EXPLOITATION (2012, 25 mins) presents the reality of child labor in Bangladesh. BOOMTOWN BABYLON PHNOM PENH (2014, 10 min) tells the story of a displaced family of slum-dwellers who find themselves abandoned in a half-built relocation site called “Peace City 2” on the outskirts of Cambodia’s capital. Much of the film's footage was shot by a 12-year-old scavenger called Srey Neang, after directors Vincent Moon and Lotje Sodderland gave her a camera to document her new life. As casualties of Cambodia's forced evictions, Neang and her family have been churned out of the city, on margins where they can be neither seen nor heard, to make way for the dream projects of the new elite. Also screening: BRICK FACTORY, produced by Cambodian media students from the NGO SCY and NEWSPAPER GIRL by Women’s Media Center.
