I’m very excited to announce that Marta Farina, a highly talented artist and good friend of mine, will be illustrating the title sequence for our feature-length documentary.
Specialising in children’s illustrations, frescoes and murals, Marta studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice and the École Estienne in Paris. Her award-winning work has been widely exhibited and, after conducting workshops for children in Europe and Asia, Marta is currently working on a children’s book of her own.
Marta also spent time in the mountains of northern Vietnam in 2010 and came to know many of the young Hmong girls there, including M and P. For more of Marta’s work, please see her website.
Speaking of the title sequence, we now have a title for our film – Sisters for Sale – and I’m pleased to share with you some artwork I shot and designed this week.
Marinho and I are now halfway through the production of the documentary. We have a lot of beautiful footage, and some fascinating interviews. If I have an opportunity, over the coming weeks I hope to edit and share with you the first glimpse of our footage.
There are ten days remaining of our fundraising campaign, and your spare change can help us expose the tragedy of human trafficking to the world. Take a look at some of the great rewards on offer here!
