Ghost Fleet

Tue 24 September @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm

- £4.50 – £10.50

What does modern-day slavery look like, and are we, as consumers, complicit in perpetuating it? Combining interviews with dramatically shot re-enactments, Ghost Fleet follows a Bangkok-based activist who fights death threats and corruption to rescue fishermen trafficked into slavery on Thai fishing boats – and help them obtain justice.

“A portrait of real-life heroism” – Washington Post

BEYOND THE SCREEN
Join us after the film to explore the campaigns bringing to life the reality of worker exploitation in the food industry and calling supermarkets to account, with Rachel Wilshaw (Ethical Trading Manager at Oxfam GB) and Shan Saba (Director of Brightwork and founder of Scotland Against Modern Slavery).

Presented in association with Oxfam Scotland.
