Children of the Dark

Wednesday, June 24 - Monday, June 29, 2009

Banned in Thailand, this Japanese drama about the international trade in children is not for the weak-stomached. A Japanese family comes to Thailand to buy kidneys for their dying child. German tourists come to Thailand to have sex with a five-year-old boy. And a couple of troubled Japanese ex-pats try to do the right thing. And fail. No matter how hard you scrub you’ll never get these images out of your brain.
