I implore you to watch this.
The Color of Freedom/Goodbye Bafana. I found this film to be very moving.
It helped me see a bit more clearly how tragically similar some things are even in our current "civilized" world. Such as Guatanamo Bay prison (probably) and the current situation with Human Slavery around the world AND in the "freedom enthused" United States. I highly suggest you watch this quietly, alone, or with a friend. It's very gripping as well, not a documentary type.
On related note, Call and Response also releases in US theatres Oct 10 (Oct 9 in Seattle), please join us and support this groundbreaking new film about the human trafficking & slavery issue (featuring people like Dr. Cornell West, Matisyahu, Moby, Ashley Judd, Cold War Kids, and many more). www.callandresponse.com.
