Exclusive preview of 'The Journey' with Emma Thompson

Wien (OTS) - Antonio Maria Costa, Executive Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, to join Oscar-winning actress and take questions about the Parliamentary Forum and Film Festival

12.00 - 14.00, Tuesday 12 February, Heldenplatz, Vienna: Members of the media are invited to join Emma Thompson, the Oscar-winning actress and Chair of the Helen Bamber Foundation, and Antonio Maria Costa, Executive Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, for an exclusive preview of The Journey, a unique art installation that maps the journey of a victim of human trafficking and opens this week in Vienna's Heldenplatz.

The Journey Against Sex Trafficking uses seven transport containers to illustrate the brutal and harrowing experiences of women sold into the sex trade. The Journey aims to show visitors the reality of human trafficking - a crime that happens every day, all around the world. The installation arrives in Vienna to coincide with the first-ever global forum on human trafficking, The Vienna Forum to Fight Human Trafficking, which opens on Wednesday 13th February at 10.00.

Mrs Thompson and Mr Costa will take questions from the media 12.00 - 12.30, after which the media will be invited to have an exclusive preview of the installation. The Journey opens to the public from 10.00-18.00 daily, from Wednesday 13th to Saturday 16th February
