I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

    This was fantastic. Thanks Olga and Magda for sharing this interesting information on film making with a campaign. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Debby. I’ve been following with interest Magda’s project from early on and I thought people would be interested in reading about it. Have a great Wednesday.

        Thanks Olga. 🙂 You too!

        1. 🙂

  2. This is such an interesting post, Olga. Fascinating to read about the making of this movie.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. I thought it was a good chance to introduce people to Magda and her work. And a great project to get involved in.

  3. An important subject, people trafficking. Any film raising awareness of this is a good project, and it looks like Magda has made a convincing film. I wish her luck with getting it shown, but unfortunately do not have the funds to help with a contribution. Living on a pension…
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I know what you mean. I will try and get some money for some of the things I have here I’m not going to take with me, but I’m not very optimistic about it. We shall see.

  4. a very worthy cause Olga. As events take over the front pages of our media on a daily basis, this atrocity goes onto the back burner.

    1. Thanks, Sally. Yes, you’re right. Thankfully, some people do not forget.

        1. Indeed!

  5. Hi Olga. This is a fun change of pace. I enjoyed the interview with Magda. The film sounds exciting.
    Several times people have asked me if I write scripts for TV shows or movies. They seem confused and surprised when I tell them I wouldn’t know where to begin with the right format. Maybe they don’t know there’s a difference… But I doubt I’d have a talent for it, so that made this post that much more interesting to me. Hugs to you both.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. I read quite a few scripts while I was working on my Ph.D. and it’s true that different people write them very differently (the same is the case for plays. Some people write very lengthy directions and others hardly anything). And writer/directors I guess write for their own needs. It’s an interesting subject, indeed.

  6. Amazing project, thank you for the post, Olga.

    1. Thanks, Inese. I hope Magda and her movie get the attention they deserve.

      1. Absolutely. Human trafficking plagues poor countries and developed countries alike. Slavery has to stop.

        1. Yes. Some bad things seem to change and evolve but never stop. It’s time to do something about it.

          1. Yes, the victims have to be heard.
