The short film “Otro banda di lama” (To the Other Side of the Sea) is part of a larger campaign (Habri bo Wowo) to inform and educate the general population of Aruba about the harsh realities of human trafficking and smuggling of migrants. A highly lucrative criminal activity that occurs all over the world, and in Aruba.
The Habri bo wowo campaign includes a 20-minute film that tells the story of Pedro and Camila, a Venezuelan couple who find themselves in dire straits and risk their lives to be smuggled into Aruba, only to find that they have been manipulated into a human trafficking situation.
Also included in this campaign is an educational package aimed at high school and university students with the aim of educating them on the subject and teaching them to recognize the signs of human trafficking and migrant smuggling.
