The Ten Ten Theatre at Tristan Bates Theatre in Covent Garden, London, premièred the documentary film Bakhita’s Prayer on the 8th of February 2015, in honour of Saint Bakhita and to draw attention to the first International Day of Prayer and Awareness against Trafficking.
Bakhita’s Prayer is a twenty six minute documentary film which follows a group of nineteen year old students from Sacred Heart School in Hammersmith, West London, who are on a quest to understand the issue of Modern Slavery and what they can do to stop it.
The students are taken on a journey which includes watching the powerful TenTen play This is my Body; meeting Cardinal Vincent Nichols, to discuss The Bakhita Initiative; deepening an understanding of modern slavery with Sr. Patricia Mulhall, representative of TRAC and member of RENATE; talking to a survivor of trafficking in the UK and learning about the life and spirituality of Saint Josephine Bakhita.
A two minute preview of the film, which is intended for use with schools and Parishes is available at the Ten Ten Theatre website: Bakhita’s Prayer.
