Human Trafficking
After remaining silent about her own real-life horrific experience for fourteen years, Frida Farrell transformed her pain into art not only for personal catharsis, but also as a powerful statement against gendered violence. APARTMENT 407 tells the story of 'Isobel' (played by Frida), a young mother whose life is changed when a charming stranger invites her to take part in a photo shoot. Instead, Isobel is kidnapped and sold into the sex trade. The result is a harrowing tale of indomitable tenacity that has received 18 film festival nominations. Born and raised in Malmo, Sweden, Farrell left at an early age to pursue a modeling career and now owns a film company, Development Hell Pictures. She uses her platform to fight international and online human trafficking, and has been featured in Cosmopolitan, Elle, and The Times.
