The Day My God Died is an award winning film by Andrew Levine and Geralyn Dreyfous telling the stories of young girls whose lives have been shattered by the child sex trade. They describe the day they were abducted and sold into sexual slavery as “the day my god died.”
The film is a feature length documentary using footage captured with “spy camera” technology from brothels in Bombay. It weaves the stories of girls, and their stolen hopes and dreams, into an unforgettable examination of the growing plague of child sex slavery.
Sanlaap, one of The Global Seva Challenge India’s selected projects, is featured in the documentary. Funds raised during the 2012 Global Seva Challenge will support the construction of an additional shelter to house 25 older girls.
