Director Megan Griffiths is scheduled to be present.

Eden is a chilling and excruciating look at the human-trafficking trade of underage girls. Winner of 2012 SXSW Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature, the fictional film follows Hyun Jae (Jamie Chung), a young Korean American abducted and imprisoned in a Nevada brothel run by sleazy U.S. marshal Bob Gault (Beau Bridges). She is renamed Eden by her captors and learns the rest of her life will entail sex with strangers, making porn films, and fighting for survival. She is quick to make a tight bond with another enslaved worker and wakes up to the fact they both must escape at any cost. Stephanie Carrie of the Village Voice said of Eden, “This is a powerful addition to the small collection of films dedicated to spreading awareness of this horrific crime.” Contains mature content, including scenes of rape, graphic violence, and strong language.  (HD Presentation)
