The Power of Beauty” Official Trailer:
“The Power of Beauty” is set in Cambodia and features Matthew Fairfax, an entrepreneur in the hairdressing world, who works to save youth who are human trafficking survivors by giving them the redemptive opportunity to pursue a career in the beauty industry.
“I tell people I didn’t pick Cambodia. Cambodia picked me,” explains Fairfax about his sudden decision to move to Cambodia and help human trafficking survivors build new lives. Fairfax founded an academy, the Kate Korpi Salon, a Western-style, high-end salon created specifically for the purpose of educating sex traffic survivors and underprivileged Cambodian youth, who would have never had such an opportunity. The film follows the lives of two students, Srey Mom Sao and Sok Peter Vanndy, each of whom has experienced a traumatic past. They are the first two students to graduate from the Academy. “They were the pioneers, they were the teachers, they taught us how to do what we are doing,” comments Fairfax. The camera follows Sao and Vanndy throughout the days leading up to their graduation and during the ceremony itself. Viewers experience their raw emotions and the difference between their personalities and what also emerges with great clarity is the resiliency of the human spirit with the right nurturing and support. “That’s the power of beauty,” says Fairfax.
“Cinémoi is dedicated to bringing people together in support of the life-changing work of our charity Children Uniting Nations. We believe that it’s vital to protect all children who suffer from abuse and tragedy due to circumstances beyond their control,” comments Cinémoi President, Daphna Ziman. “The Power of Beauty truly complements our mission to help and draw attention to the plight of the underserved youth of Cambodia and around the world, who often have no other options and are forced to enter the sex trade.”
“Tomorrow and The Butterfly” is composed of a prologue, an epilogue, and six episodes, including “The Power of Beauty.”
