Animation short Reena Ki Kahaani to release on International Human Rights Day
Directed by Shred Shreedhar, the nine-and-a-half minute film highlights the horrors of human trafficking
Director Shred Shreedhar (In Our World) is set to release an animated film on human trafficking on International Human Rights Day on December 10.
Titled Reena Ki Kahaani, the nine-and-a-half-minute highlights the horrors of human trafficking. Based on the real-life story of Reena, the film traces her path from being a girl with dreams to her entrapment into the flesh trade and subsequent rescue. The film sheds light on the different vulnerabilities that facilitate such crimes, like false promises and the lure of a better life to the clever targeting of girls from weaker sections of society, who dream of a brighter future.
Reena Ki Kahaani is made by Shreedhar’s studio Shred Creative Lab in collaboration with Vihaan, an anti-human trafficking NGO.
“I hope that with this film, a heinous crime like human trafficking gets talked about more in the mainstream media," Shreedhar said. "More importantly, people need to be aware on how to identify vulnerabilities and threats. What better day to highlight this reassuring story of courage and human grit in the face of a brutal violation of human rights and spirit? Nothing celebrates Human Rights Day as the rise and triumph of the human spirit in Reena’s story.”
The film will be released on Shred Creative Lab’s social media handles.
