ILLICIT NETWORKS: PORTRAYAL THROUGH FILM

TRIBECA TALKS 90 Minutes Panel Premiere
FILM GUIDE ILLICIT NETWORKS: PORTRAYAL THROUGH FILM
Tribeca Enterprises and Google Ideas team up for this unique free panel addressing Hollywood's portrayal of illicit networks that traffic everything from narcotics and weapons to body parts and human beings. Experts, law enforcement participants, and survivors will use what we learn from film to examine the mysterious and misunderstood world of illicit trafficking. At a moment when illicit networks are increasing physical and systemic violence and 2 percent of the world's trade is in illicit goods, this panel of experts will separate fact from fiction to launch a critical dialogue. Moderated by Jared Cohen, Director of Google Ideas.
