Actress Nandita Das has signed on to direct indie thriller “Trafficking,” set in the world of global sex trafficking.

Siddharth Kara, an expert on the trafficking issue who penned the script, will produce along with Luca Guadagnino (“I Am Love”) of First Sun Pictures in Italy and Elizabeth Stanley (“The Dark Path Chronicles”) of Elizabeth Stanley Pictures.

Das made her feature directorial debut with 2008’s “Firaaq” and is chairperson of production banner Children’s Film Society in India. She’s acted in over 30 films including “Bawander,” “Before the Rains” and “Ramchand Pakistani” and served on juries at the Cannes, Marrakech and Karlovy Vary film festivals.

“Trafficking,” a winner of the Cinestory Screenplay competition, tells the intertwining story of three young women from India, Nigeria and the Ukraine forced into sexual slavery in a brothel in Italy, where they attempt a daring escape.

Kara’s interviewed more than 500 slaves over the past decade and wrote “Sex Trafficking: Inside the Business of the Modern Slavery,” published last year by Columbia University Press. He’s on the boards of several antislavery organizations and he is the first Fellow on Human Trafficking at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.

Das is represented by Echo Lake Prods. and Brunskill Management in the UK. Kara is represented by Gersh and Guadagnino is repped by Cinetic Management.
