Global Cities Free of Slavery is a 52-minute documentary on modern slavery and the exploitation of labor in three different cities, located in different continents. Nottingham in the UK, Maputo in Mozambique and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.
Directed by Luiz Eduardo Lerina
It's a pleasure to submit my documentary in this Festival. It deals with issues of labor exploitation, inequality, human trafficking, poverty and the vulnerabilities that underpin modern slavery. That gave me the opportunity to follow the work of researchers in three different cities, in different continents, in search of how they effectively tackle the problems of labor exploitation. The documentary also addresses the historic aspect of Transatlantic slavery, that left deep marks in our societies.
