Ghost Fleet

Part of the Take One Action Film Festival Season

Body

What does modern-day slavery look like, and are we complicit in perpetuating it?

Patima Tungpuchayakul is a Bangkok-based activist who has committed her life to rescuing fishermen from Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos and other nations of Southeast Asia, who have been trafficked into slavery on Thai fishing boats. Fighting death threats, corruption and complacency, Patima and her small team travel to remote Indonesian islands to free these men and help them obtain justice.

Combining interviews with dramatically shot re-enactments, Ghost Fleet lays bare some of Patima’s extensive research, pointing to a much wider context of exploitation at the heart of the global fishing industry. It makes a powerful case for governments, companies and consumers to wake up and take action.

Presented in association with Oxfam Scotland.

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).
