Oral Roberts University, 7777 S. Lewis Ave., will host the Oklahoma premiere of "Not Today," a feature-length film that sheds light on the modern-day sex trafficking industry that consumes the Dalit class in India.
The free screening is set for 7 p.m. Thursday at the university's Christ's Chapel.
"The world needs to understand that slavery still exists, that even today young children are bought and sold like cattle, that little girls are forced into the dark illicit sex trade, that young boys and girls are coerced to beg in the streets and bring their proceeds back to line the pockets of thugs who abuse them at night," said the film's executive producer, Matthew Cork.
Producer Brent Martz and Dalit Freedom Network President Ana Steele will be available before and after the screening to talk with the audience.
"Not Today" won several awards and film festivals last year and will begin showing in theaters on April 12.
