Pornography

‘Not Today’ an ‘eye-opener’ to modern-day slavery; opens Fri.

NASHVILLE (BP) -- The numbers are staggering. There are more people in slavery today in the world than there were in the days of the transatlantic slave trade. An estimated 27 million people -- men, women, boys and girls -- are enslaved, held against their will, in brothels, factories and fields around the world at this very moment.

The soon-to-be released film "Not Today" is the first feature-length, faith-based film to tackle the issue of human trafficking. It opens in about 40 theaters Friday (April 12) and will move to other cities in the following weeks. In the movie, Caden Welles, the film's lead character, is unexpectedly introduced to a world few Americans know still exists: a thriving human-trafficking trade that often involves children. Welles, who is played by Cody Longo, travels to India and meets his opposite. Welles has access to material abundance and lives a carefree life; his counterpart has no resources, no voice and struggles to survive. The film, which was shot on location in Hyderabad, India, highlights the startling dehumanization of the Dalit people, who are considered "untouchables" within India's caste system. (Read about the Dalit in this 2010 BP story.) The International Mission Board is one of 13 global partners in the movie's promotion, highlighting ministry in the region through its South Asia Peoples group website (http://southasianpeoples.imb.org/NotToday). An IMB representative in South Asia called the movie an "eye-opener to the depth of the issues related to trafficking and modern-day slavery. The film "should motivate Christians to act," the representative said. Baptist Press recently spoke with Brent Martz, the film's producer. BAPTIST PRESS: This movie is really a story of redemption. Let's talk about the story itself and how you begin in a high-end neighborhood in Southern California with a Lamborghini and you end up in the slums of India. MARTZ: It was important for us to show the stark contrast between the blessings that we enjoy here in the United States and the total poverty that the Dalits live in in India. ...
