New Zealand premiere documentary screening. Auckland Festival of Photography and the Alexia Foundation present - The Long Night. This award winning film weaves together the stories of seven people whose lives are forever changed by the sex trafficking of American children. Set in Seattle, Washington, the feature documentary film “The Long Night” gives voice and meaning to the crisis of minors who are forced and coerced into the American sex trade.

The film weaves together the stories of seven people whose lives are forever changed by domestic minor sex trafficking. “The Long Night” is not themed to advocate a solution. Instead, it submerges the viewer in Natalie and Lisa’s experience surviving the life; in Tom and Nacole watching their daughter slip out of their hands; in Andy and his fellow police officers, Brian and Joel, trying to create a more just system.

Filmed and directed by award-winning photojournalist Tim Matsui, produced in partnership with MediaStorm and the Alexia Foundation, “The Long Night” is an intimate and visceral testimony to those who have lived this crisis. Tim Matsui is an award-winning, Emmy-nominated visual journalist and filmmaker focusing on human trafficking, alternative energy, and the environment. Tim seeks to inform and engage viewers through his projects, using media for social change.

Duration - 1hr 12 mins Free. Arrive early to secure a seat. Mature audience recommended.
