The documentary, which deals with crimes related to drug trafficking, such as human trafficking, is being presented in different parts of Bolivia along with the project to support the fight against drugs
Several events have been held to raise awareness of crimes associated with drug trafficking, such as human trafficking as part of the “European support for special forces to fight drugs in the application of Bolivian law, “project, financed by the European Union and managed by the FIIAPP in conjunction with the Coordination Secretariat of the National Council for Combating Illicit Drug Trafficking (CONALTID).
CONALTID and FIIAPP presented the Spanish documentary, “El Proxeneta”, in the Bolivian cities of La Paz, Tarija and Santa Cruz. This documentary was directed by the filmmaker Mabel Lozano and deals with human trafficking, money laundering, organised crime and prostitution.
The director of the documentary has been working with police from all over the world for 14 years on the subject of recruitment of women, with the aim of preventing this activity and educating the population.
During the screenings, Mabel Lozano explained that she uses film as a tool for social transformation, adding that “I have come to Bolivia to create synergies and to continue reporting and working on prevention for women and to encourage training in victim detection in state bodies”. In addition, regarding her film career, she said: “I’ve filmed in Argentina, also in Africa, Romania and Moldova. I have been using film to talk about prevention for 14 years, because if you don’t talk about it, it doesn’t exist. I’ve carried out a lot of campaigns, in fact, I have the medal from the Spanish National Police for doing their anti-trafficking campaign”.
Finally, she stressed the work that needs to be done to achieve equality between women and men, as this would enable women to build a fair society.
Also, during her stay in Bolivia with FIIAPP, Mabel Lozano was able to meet and chat with institutions that have worked on the project, such as the La palabra hecha vida (Word Made Flesh) and Munasim Kullakita foundations.
