Julia Reiley, UNL Professor of Practice interviews Heriselda Begaj-Viotti, Impact Campaigns Producer. Within the first hour you’re awake, chances are the coffee you drink, the phone you text with, or the shirt you put on may have been made (in part) with child labor. Around the world, more than 152 million children are victims of child labor. It’s a complex problem, but it’s one we can solve. The award-winning documentary The Price of Free shows the hidden faces of these children and introduces you to the man who’s committed his life to ensuring all children are free, Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi. With the help of a covert network of informants, Kailash and his dedicated team carry out daring raids to rescue and rehabilitate imprisoned children. Using hidden cameras and playing the role of buyers at the factory to gain access, we watch Kailash take on one of his most challenging missions to date: finding Sonu, a young boy trafficked to Delhi for work who has been missing for eight months.
