Intersection: An MTV EXIT Animation| 24mins
Director: MTV EXIT | Producer: JM Animation
Focus Years: 2009 | Country: Thailand
In early 2009, MTV EXIT completed its first animated film. "Intersection" is a stark, stylish, and high quality Anime (Japanese-style animation) that provides a hard-hitting look at human trafficking and sexual exploitation in Asia. It is a riveting story told from the perspectives of five individuals who all play a part in the trafficking chain: the victim, the trafficker, the mamasan (brothel owner), the brothel client, and an undercover cop. The half-hour film features the voices of film star Ananda Everingham and MTV VJ, Taya Rogers (English version), and many other local artists for other Asian-language versions. "Intersection" was produced by Korean animation studio, JM Animation, the award-winning studio behind the highly-acclaimed, visually haunting, â€œWonderful Daysâ€ (Sky Blue). The soundtrack features music by U.K. rock band, Radiohead and Thievery Corporation. MTV EXIT will be releasing "Intersection" in English and multiple other languages starring well-known local actors from across Asia.
