Robert Bilheimer to appear on Outreach Today on VoiceAmerica Talk Radio Network

Oscar nominated director Robert Bilheimer, of “Not My Life,” a documentary on human trafficking to appear on Outreach Today on the VoiceAmerica Radio Network
 Outreach Today announced that nationally acclaimed director, writer and producer Robert Bilheimer who was nominated for an Oscar by the Academy Awards, will join Melissa Jenkins-Simon and Diane Stafford, hosts of Outreach Today radio program on the VoiceAmerica Variety Channel wwww.voiceamerica.com/show/1955/outreach-today Wednesday, July 18, at 10 a.m. Pacific Time.

Robert Bilheimer will discuss “Not My Life,” the first documentary film to depict the horrifying and dangerous practices of human trafficking and modern slavery on a global scale. Filmed on five continents over a period of four years, “Not My Life” unflinchingly, but with enormous dignity and compassion, depicts the unspeakable practices of a multi-billion dollar global industry whose profits, as the film's narration says, "are built on the backs and in the beds of our planet's youth."

While acknowledging that trafficking and slavery are universal crimes, affecting millions of human beings all over the world, “Not My Life” zeroes in on the fact that the vast majority of trafficking and slavery victims are children.

“Not My Life” features dignified and inspiring testimony from survivors; depictions of trafficking, exploitation, and slavery in all parts of the world including forced labor in Africa; street begging and garbage picking in India; sexual trafficking in the United States and Southeast Asia; and various forms of child enslavement and abuse in both North and South America. “Not My Life” is narrated by actress Glenn Close.
