SXSW 2013 is mere weeks away, so it makes sense that we’re getting our first trailer for a film that premiered to great acclaim at last year’s festival winning the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature. Better late than never I suppose. Eden is a true story about human sex trafficking and stars Jamie Chung in the title role as a Korean-American teenager abducted in the mid-’90s and held prisoner for two years. Along with several other girls she’s forced into work as a sex slave in clubs, motels and even fraternity houses. As the hardships, torture and degradation mount she realizes that her survival may very well depend on her level of cooperation with her captors, and a decision is made that she can never fully return from. This is writer/director Megan Griffiths‘ third feature film and co-stars Beau “No, The Other One” Bridges and Matt O’Leary. Check »
