About this Event
Thailand’s seafood industry is one of the largest in the world. But years of illegal and invasive fishing have forced boats further from shore, leaving then chronically undermanned. An insidious solution has emerged: human traffickers sell captives into slavery on the ships. The men — who were often tricked or kidnapped into servitude — are worked to the bone, beaten, maimed and never paid Told through the eyes of three activists —Ghost Fleet offers a somber and eye-opening exposé into a shadowy world of greed and mistreatment, and the individuals fighting to shut it down, one freed slave at a time.
EARTHXFILM Movie Monday presents Ghostfleet at 2 locations. Monday, October 28 in Fort Worth at the Modern Art Museum and Tuesday, October 29 in Dallas at the Angelika Film Center. For more information visit Earthx.org/film.
