Chinese pop star Han Geng has teamed up with MTV in hopes to raise awareness of human trafficking in Asia, explains The Hollywood Reporter.
Han, who will appear in “Transformers 4”, is also working on a documentary titled Human Traffic: China that will aim to inform and encourage viewers to help prevent human trafficking.
The documentary is hosted by Han and tells real stories of people affected by the human trafficking trade in China and the wider region.
Among those featured in the documentary are Xiao Xiang, a young Chinese boy abducted for illegal domestic adoption, Kyi Kyi, a woman from Myanmar trafficked to China and forced into marriage and Thien, a young girl from Vietnam trafficked to China as a sex slave.
“MTV EXIT worked closely with anti-trafficking agencies across China to document the real stories of people affected by human trafficking,” said Matt Love, director of MTV EXIT, in a statement.
“Our goal is to educate young people on this critical social issue, and encourage audiences to take action if they suspect human trafficking is happening in their communities,” said Love.
The documentary is in Mandarin with English subtitles, and is available rights-free and at no cost to broadcasters. It has already gone live on tuduo.com and Sina Weibo, which are MTV EXIT’s official media partners.
