A WOMAN CAPTURED (Critical Forum) with Document
December 2, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pmFree – £8
Presented as part of Document Human Rights Film Festival.
A Woman Captured (Bernadett Tuza-Ritter, Germany/Hungary 2017) reveals the shocking phenomenon of modern-day slavery in the heart of Europe. It follows Marish, a 52-year-old Hungarian woman who has been serving as a family housekeeper for a decade, working 20 hours a day without pay. With no ID, no bed to sleep in and only leftover scraps to eat Marish is treated like an animal and forbidden to leave the house without permission. Shot over a period of two years, the film documents the first transformative steps of a journey Maresh had long given up hope of making – towards her freedom, dignity and a renewed faith in life.
It is estimated that around 45 million people around the world live in modern slavery. In Hungary alone there are about 22,000.
