The film is needed
I want to say that there is a point in human affairs at which the principle concern in producing a work of art is that it is needed. For those reviewers too sophisticated to recognize the colossal issue and disgraceful fact of still-existing slavery, surely they can find aesthetic objections within this film. Reviewers, such the previous, from the North, may also comment that the film represents a political manipulation designed to vilify a faction and glorify another. In the event that the documentation of injustice casts a negative light on another group unjustly treated, then perhaps it is best to document no injustice at all. I am certain that it is the case that over 90% if the American public are unaware of the endurance, and record breaking prevalence, of the international slave trade, an industry that remains perfectly compatible with capitalism worldwide, since the enormity of it as a problem is routinely swept under the rug while the personal nuances of overpaid actors and athletes become our daily bread.
