Take One Action Film Festival presents a screening of Ghost Fleet, a powerful uncovering of modern-day slavery.
About Ghost Fleet
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
What does modern-day slavery look like, and are we, as consumers, complicit in perpetuating it? Combining interviews with dramatically shot re-enactments, Ghost Fleet follows a Bangkok-based activist who fights death threats and corruption to rescue fishermen trafficked into slavery on Thai fishing boats – and help them obtain justice.
“A portrait of real-life heroism” - Washington Post
BEYOND THE SCREEN
Join us after the film to explore the campaigns bringing to life the reality of worker exploitation in the food industry and calling supermarkets to account, with Rachel Wilshaw (Ethical Trading Manager at Oxfam GB) and Shan Saba (Director of Brightwork and founder of Scotland Against Modern Slavery).
Presented in association with Oxfam Scotland.
Shannon Service & Jeffrey Waldon | USA | 2018 | 90 min | Thai/Bahasa Indonesia/Khmer/English with English subtitles
Screening as part of Take One Action Film Festival 2019, 18th - 29th September
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Ghost Fleet are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
