Next Thursday, Fair Trade Pictures, Different Drummer, and International Justice Mission will debut their new documentary film CALL+RESPONSE – featuring undercover footage from Shared Hope International!
Set to abolitionist songs and recorded by some of today’s hottest artists, CALL+RESPONSE is a rockumentary filmed to raise awareness to the global issue of modern slavery. It is a different approach to an issue that has sparked numerous documentaries, yet remains largely veiled from public attention.
This generation is one that is inspired by a song, moved by a cause, and passionate about changing the world. MTV’s EXIT Campaign is designed to inspire young adults to take action against human trafficking and makes an appeal through music. Both the CALL+RESPONSE rockumentary and MTV are taking an edgy, cool approach to combating this pervasive issue. If recording artists continue to make the motivation behind their music a cause—as they do in CALL+RESPONSE—they have the ability to ignite a new generation of activists.
