Director of CaribbeanTales, Frances Anne-Solomon, recently directed a documentary titled “Human Traffic: Past and Present which was produced by the Center for African and African American Research at Duke University.
Solomon has shared with ARC the following about her experience:
“I was invited to attend the conference to document it. I was interested to do this as I am developing a feature film project that explores similar subject matter in a Caribbean context. It was a great experience to work with the folk there and to immerse myself in this extraordinary contemporary phenomenon. Hopefully the documementary will have a positive impact and help people to better understand issues related to human trafficking. And I am pleased to say that my company CaribbeanTales Worldwide Distribution will be distributing the film.“
The organisers brought together an eclectic and impressive group of leading artists, scholars, policy-makers and activists for an intimate weekend of discussion and presentation that aimed to tease out some of the themes as well as the fallacies and myths that underlie this troubling topic. ”I hope we can have a broad set of discussions that could arrive eventually at some more profound understanding of this phenomenon called human trafficking.” (Michaeline Critchlow.
Presenters include: Siddharth Kara, Robert Bach, Gunther Peck, Cindy Hahamovitch, Jacqueline Bhabha, and Charles Campbell.
