Gerald Molen, Academy Award-winning producer of Schindler’s List, brings the fight against child sex-trafficking to the big screen with the release of the documentary THE ABOLITIONISTS, in partnership with Fathom Events for a one-night-only event in select movie theaters on May 16th.
Featuring former CIA and Homeland Security operative Tim Ballard, the documentary contains undercover footage from rescue operations conducted around the world. Human trafficking has become the world’s fastest growing crime, with over 27 million people enslaved–nearly 2 million of them children.
THE ABOLITIONISTS takes viewers behind the scenes as Ballard and his team of highly trained operatives risk their own lives to free innocent children from captivity. On December 10th, 2013, Special Agent Tim Ballard turned in his Homeland Security badge and resigned from his employment with the United States government after spending a decade rescuing children from child sex tourism domestically and overseas. Though his job was difficult, he was proud that his country was one of very few in the world actually doing anything about this problem.
Now the Founder and CEO of Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.), Ballard and his team investigate and rescue enslaved children from around the world, while undercover film crews posing as traffickers record each of these dangerous rescue operations. Utilizing hidden cameras and surveillance equipment, directors Darrin Fletcher and Chet Thomas capture every moment of freedom fighters triumphing over evil that will leave viewers inspired to join in the fight of THE ABOLITIONISTS.
