Lindsay Lohan's India Documentary Makes Mom Proud

Posted on

The BBC has released a trailer previewing its documentary, Lindsay Lohan In India, which chronicles the actress’s weeklong visit in December to investigate the trafficking of women and children.

“It was an amazing, life-changing experience for her,” Lindsay‘s mom, Dina, told PEOPLE on Saturday. “I’m so proud of Lindsay, that under all the scrutiny the tabloids put her under, she is a very strong, caring, talented girl who ignores all the negative, and continues to move forward in a positive direction. I am so proud of her.”

According to the BBC, Lohan, 23, meets with “young boys who work 16-hour days under the constant threat of beatings, a reformed trafficker who would make a quick buck luring young girls…[and] a shelter where young girls promised domestic work for India’s burgeoning middle classes were trafficked into brothels and forced into prostitution.”

“As her trip draws to an end,” a BBC press release says, “Lindsay questions whether the increasing demand for domestic help and consumer goods by India’s wealthy, coupled with the increasing poverty in rural India, , means there is any solution to this abominable trade.”
