SLAVERY: A GLOBAL INVESTIGATION
Slavery is officially banned internationally by all countries, yet despite this, in the world today there are more slaves now than ever before. In the 400 years of the slave trade, around 13 million people were shipped from Africa. Today there are an estimated 27 million slaves – people paid no money, locked away and controlled by violence. Multi-Award winning documentary makers Kate Blewett and Brian Woods saw this terrible exploitation with their own eyes. The result is an utterly devastating film.
Ghosts is based on a true story about twenty three Chinese illegal migrant workers who drowned while forced to collect cockles (shellfish) off the coast of England on the night of February 5, 2004. They became cut off by the incoming tide and although one person was able to use a mobile phone to contact rescue services a number of circumstances led to their death. Two bodies were never recovered.
The 2006 film Ghosts, directed by Nick Broomfield, is a dramatisation of the events leading up to the tragedy.
