This 80-minute documentary, based on the book Disposable People, exposes cases of slavery in the rug-making sector of Northwest India, the cocoa plantations in the Ivory Coast, and even the homes of World Bank officials in Washington, D.C.
Filmed in India, Brazil, West Africa, London, and the US, the documentary shows how slavery fits into the global economy. The filmmakers actually buy slaves in Africa and help to free child slaves in India.
Slavery won the Peabody Award in 2001.
