iEmpathize Denver Hub Coordinator, Candace Joice, will be speaking on a panel following the Women+Film VOICES film festival screening of Eden at the Sci Film Center on March 23rd.
In this electrifying thriller inspired by true, harrowing events, Jamie Chung (The Hangover III, The Man with the Iron Fists) stars as Hyun Jae, a young Korean-American girl abducted and forced into prostitution by a human and drug trafficking ring. Renamed “Eden” by her kidnappers, she soon learns the only way to survive is to earn the trust of those in charge: Bob Gault, a corrupt U.S. Marshall (Beau Bridges, The Descendants) and his assistant Vaughan (Matt O’Leary, The Lone Ranger), a disturbed young man battling demons of his own. But as Eden’s influence within the operation grows, she must decide just how much of herself she’s willing to lose to survive.
