The Bed of Lies
The Bed of Lies 'talks'. The soundtrack includesthe client speaking, insistent, urgent, menacing. 'Come on …smile… I paid for you to smile – ah that's better.' Then interrupted by a phone call from his son. 'Daddy, Daddy? Where are you? Don't forget I've got football practice tomorrow.' And a call from his wife, 'Jimmy and Maria are here for dinner'. The sound track also includes the voice and thoughts, emotions of the Victim who he was paying to rape. She cannot breathe. The 'voices' and thoughts in the Bed of Lies soundtrack with violin and cello, left audience members deeply moved and, at times, weeping. Bed of Lies soundtrack to be posted soon.
Ismini, a 16 year old high school student created this artwork student in response to hearing about human trafficking for the first time and watching Emma Thompson's short film, The Journey.
