Movie zooms in on human trafficking

Movie producers Magic Promotions and UGM Graphics have collaborated to expose the ills of human trafficking in Malawi through a movie which will premiere at the Bingu International Convention Centre in Lilongwe in June.

The movie, titled “Justice”, revolves around the story of a young girl who was trafficked into exploitation and slavery by a taxi driver involved in a syndicate run by a corrupt Police Inspector General and criminal-minded businesspeople.

One of the producers, Brazio Mathias Kanyong’o, says the movie will act as a powerful tool to provide the public with important information about the vice.

“Movies, with their entertaining nature, can effectively communicate a message and educate people across multiple locations within the community. This is a model that Magic Promotions is planning to implement as one way of raising awareness about human trafficking and creating a platform where the general public will understand and appreciate the role that the arts play in the fight against human trafficking in Malawi,” Kanyong’o said.

The movie’s directors, Adam Ogam and Bester Kauwa, have set an K11 million budget for the film, along with a star-studded cast that includes celebrities Dorothy Kingston and Joyce Chavula, among others.

After the premiere, the movie will be available for streaming on the Copyright Society of Malawi (COSOMA)’s YouTube channel, according to producer Kanyong’o.

Magic Promotions has been involved in similar projects over the past five years.
