The first trailer of the award winning film ‘The Price of Free’ featuring Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi has been released by Participant Media, Concordia Studio and YouTube.
The film follows Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi along with his team of BBA Activists through gripping secret raids and quests for retracting missing children keeping the audiences on the edge of their seats.
The Price of Free presents a unique opportunity to amplify the voice of Kailash Satyarthi, a tireless global child rights activist in an endeavor to accelerate the reach and impact of his efforts to end child slavery and violence against children. Working with partners YouTube, Participant and Concordia, the Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation under the ambit of its Global 100 Million Campaign will provide audiences to understand the plight of millions of children trapped in child labor and slavery further galvanizing social and political will to curb these crimes against children by advocating and leading change in their communities and around the world.
It is a travesty of sorts that freedom which is a universal and non-negotiable right does not come free for millions of children in this world, but like the Nobel Peace Laureate often says that someone will have to pay the price of freedom for these children, the film has a clear call to action for all stakeholders to protect the rights of the most vulnerable and marginalized children.
The film premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the U.S. Documentary Grand Jury Prize. Co-produced and co-financed by Participant Media and Concordia Studio, the 90-minute YouTube Original feature length documentary will debut on SoulPancake’s YouTube channel on November 27th, timed to coincide with #GivingTuesday. SoulPancake is the Participant Media owned multi-platform content studio and production company.
Talking about ‘The Price of Free’, Kailash Satyarthi said, “This film shows the real scourge of child trafficking, child labor, slavery and exploitation that is ruining millions of childhoods and ruthlessly crushing their dreams. It tells stories of the most marginalized and vulnerable children that I have been fighting for all my life and will continue till my last breath. I call on everyone to watch this film and work with us in creating a world where all children are free, healthy, safe and educated. A world where every child is free to be a child! Even if one child is not free then none of us are free!”
