ABOUT THE EVENT

Join us for a film screening on the dirty secrets of the global fishing supply chain. Ghost Fleet is the incredible true story of Bangkok-based Patima Tungpuchayakul and her team at the Labour Protection Network (LPN) embarking on a dangerous journey to the most remote Indonesian islands to rescue and liberate fishermen who have been tricked or trafficked into the horrific world of forced labor in the Thai fishing industry. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Patima on her impactful work. The event is free, but there will be an opportunity to donate to LPN to aid their critical operations supporting migrant communities in Thailand. There will be a short happy hour with food and drinks following the screening.

ABOUT THE FILM

Bangkok-based Patima Tungpuchayakul has committed her life to rescuing and returning home men from Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, and other Southeast Asian nations who have been sold to Thai fishing companies by human traffickers. Once at sea, these captive men go months, even years, without setting foot on land, earning little to no pay, trapped in a modern form of slavery on the boats and forced to endure horrific and often deadly conditions. Patima and her small team of activists risk their lives on remote Indonesian islands to find these men, fight for their emancipation and seek justice for them. In the face of illness, death threats, corruption, and complacency, Patimas fearless determination reveals stories of criminal conspiracy at the heart of the global seafood industry, as she calls on her nation and the world to wake up and take action.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Ms. Patima Tungpuchayakul has emerged as the key leader in ending slavery at sea in Southeast Asia. Her rescue work was the subject of a 2019 award-winning documentary film Ghost Fleet, and earned her a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017. After surviving her own bout with cancer at age 22, she became an activist and has dedicated her life to helping others. Over two decades, Patima has built awareness of human rights abuse and protected migrant workers across 10 nations in the region.

In 2004, she co-founded the Labour Protection Network (LPN) along with her husband Sompong Srakaew. They have assisted over 5,000 Thai and migrant workers to date.

   "My goal is to live to help others."
