A harrowing look at slavery on the high seas.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
This suspenseful high-seas adventure follows a team of activists who rescue modern-day slaves in Thailand’s illegal fishing industry. Thai activist Patima Tungpuchayakul, nominated for the Nobel Prize for her work rescuing thousands of victims, tracks down escaped slaves who live like Robinson Crusoe on remote islands, helping to bring these long-vanished ghosts back to life and to their families.
