The Flower Girl

THE FLOWER GIRL is short ‘coming of age’ film about the corruption of innocence that endeavours to show what it’s like to be a victim of human trafficking through the point of view of a child.

Whilst travelling through South East Asia, the director purchased a rose from a young girl in a busy tourist area. It was not until some time later that he became aware these children were actually victims of human trafficking. A lot of them are sold by their families in poor villages of neighbouring countries and forced into selling roses to tourists.

We are team of independent and student filmmakers who with your help will be able to put THE FLOWER GIRL into production, allowing us to spread awareness for  an issue that effects millions of people world-wide.

May, a six year old girl from a rural Cambodian village, is sold by her parents and forced into selling roses to tourists on the streets of Bangkok. 

Due to the trauma of her early childhood, May feels a sense of disassociation from her surroundings. Po, another child in the same circumstance, helps give May the courage she needs to overcome her fears.

How the funds will be used

The goal of our campaign is to raise $12,500. With out the help of big Hollywood studios it takes a lot of time and dedication to produce a film. Most of the expenses will be covered by our experienced and passionate crew but we need your help in getting us over the line.

Your support will not only allow us to go into production with THE FLOWER GIRL, but will also help us raise awareness on an issue that needs to be talked about. Once we have achieved our goal, we would LOVE to give any other additional amount raised to some amazing charities who are supporting people effected by human trafficking.

These funds will contribute towards:

– Our Thai Cast and Crew (Through WindUp Films)
– Equipment Hire in Thailand
– Location and Filming Permits
