HOLLY opens across the country

Priority Films and Slowhand Cinema Releasing opens HOLLY, directed by Guy Moshe, starring Ron Livingston, newcomer Thuy Nguyen, Virginie Ledoyen, Udo Kier and Chris Penn, in one of his final film performances. Shot on location in Cambodia, including many scenes in actual brothels in the notorious red light district of Phnom Penh, HOLLY is a captivating, touching and emotional experience, that highlights the growing international issue of human trafficking.

Patrick, (Ron Livingston), an American card shark and dealer of stolen artifacts, has been ‘comfortably numb’ in Cambodia for years, when he encounters Holly (Thuy Nguyen), a 12-year-old Vietnamese girl, in the K11 red light village. The girl has been sold by her impoverished family and smuggled across the border to work as a prostitute. Holly’s virginity makes her a lucrative prize, and when she is sold to a child trafficker, Patrick embarks on a frantic search through both the beautiful and sordid faces of the country, in an attempt to bring her to safety.

Harsh yet poetic, this feature forms part of the ‘K-11’ Project, dedicated to raising awareness of the epidemic child trafficking and sex slavery trade though several film projects. The film’s producers have also founded the RedLight Children Campaign which is a worldwide grassroots initiative generating conscious concern and inspiring immediate action against child sexploitation.

Priority Films, Slowhand Cinema Releasing and Max Entertainment in association with Vox Entertainment and Autumn Entertainment Partners. HOLLY stars Ron Livingston, Thuy Nguyen, Virginie Ledoyen, Udo Kier and Chris Penn. HOLLY is executive produced by Amit Kort, Jennifer Krychowecky, David Weiner, Charles Feng, Brian Houston and Alex Collmer. Produced by Nava Levin.
