Modern Day Slaves – Niger
July 2005. The chains and markets may be gone, but in 21st century Africa, people are still being born as slaves. Produced by ABC Australia. Distributed by Journeyman Pictures.
This is Al Jazeera’s powerful investigative series on modern slavery throughout the planet. No country, officials say, is untouched by this recurring scourge of inhumanity and depravity that enslaves, reports say, some 27,000,000 men, women and children. Although slavery has often morphed in form from classic scenarios, it still shares these common conditions: 1) victims of slavery cannot escape the complete control of their enslavers; 2) they are controlled through violence and threats; 3) They are economically exploited. This series of nine videos will educate and upset you.
The Child Within
To be a pregnant child is to be terrified. Girls between 15 and 19 are twice more likely to die from pregnancy and childbirth than women in their 20s and 25,000 children marry every day, 19 every minute. Camfed is part of the international movement to end child marriage and motherhood. Our film, The Child Within, is an unflinching portrait of three girls, three unique individuals, who are among the statistics.  The Child Within was made in 2011 in rural Malawi, in a district where pregnancy is the prime cause of school dropout in 50 percent of cases.
Hidden Truth
Filmed by the first women’s filmmaking collective in rural Zambia, Hidden Truth is an intimate portrayal of the effects of domestic violence on women and children in Samfya, a remote region of Northern Zambia.
