Amnesty International UK is supporting the release of new film Lilya 4-Ever in the UK next month. The film portrays the trafficking of women from the former Soviet Union to the West where they are often forced into prostitution. The organisation has issued publicity information about the film to its UK supporters. The film's subject ties in with one of Amnesty's current campaigns, Rights for all in Russia. Kate Allen, director of Amnesty International, said: "Our ongoing efforts to raise human rights issues in Russia and to campaign for women's rights are enhanced by this compelling drama." The film, which opens in UK cinemas on 25 April, is by Swedish director Lukas Moodysson.
