Missa Marjat: Where the Berries Are

March 15, 7:00 PM

Free

Junya Yimprasert will present her new documentary film, Missa Marjat: Where the Berries Are, about farmers from Thailand trafficked to work in the wild berry harvest in Finland and who now struggle for justice. A Q&A with the filmmaker will follow. Yimprasert is a prominent human rights activist from Thailand and a long-time campaigner for the rights of workers and victims of human trafficking, both in Thailand and beyond. She is the founder of the Thai Labour Campaign and a co-founder of Focus on the Global South. She currently lives in Finland in political exile for her uncompromising support of free speech, democratic rule, and open criticism of the Thai monarchy and military rule.

Sponsored by the Anthropology Department, Center for the Arts and Humanities, East Asian Studies, Global Studies, the Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement, and the Oak Institute for the Study of International Human Rights.
