FRONTLINE Investigates Trafficking in US
It’s a crime that hides in plain sight. FRONTLINE and the Investigative Reporting Program at U.C. Berkeley examine the case of Guatemalan teens forced to work against their will on an egg farm in Ohio.
FRONTLINE: Trafficked airs Tuesday, April 24 at 9:00 p.m. on KUED. The investigation of labor trafficking exposes a criminal network that exploited undocumented minors; companies profiting from forced labor; and the U.S. government’s role.
The documentary is from Daffodil Altan and Andrés Cediel, who also produced Rape in the Fields and Rape on the Night Shift — award-winning collaborative investigations of sexual abuse in the agricultural and janitorial industries, respectively.
Altan is an Emmy-nominated documentary producer, print journalist, and radio reporter at U.C. Berkeley’s Investigative Reporting Program. Andrés Cediel is a FRONTLINE producer and professor of Journalism at Berkeley. Their Rape on the Night Shift, produced for FRONTLINE, won the Investigative Reporters and Editors Award for best Broadcast/Video in 2016, and led to the passage of a new state law in California.
