The Rescue List - INDEPENDENT CRITIC REVIEW
October 12, 2018
"The Rescue List is one of those documentaries that sneaks up on you with its power and impact. It seems calm, almost normal, yet we become so involved in these young lives that if you’re like me you’ll find yourself thinking about the film long after the closing credits have rolled"
The Rescue List - HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW
April 23, 2018
"Documentaries exposing social injustice around the world are nothing new, but The Rescue List, which had its world premiere at the San Francisco Film Festival, takes us to a part of the world we rarely see. Set in Ghana, it centers on the battle to rescue children who have been sold into slavery by their parents. Award-winning filmmaker Steve James (Hoop Dreams, Life Itself) served as executive producer, and the co-directors, Alyssa Fedele and Zachary Fink, also have impressive credits in the field. Their background enabled them to deliver a film of compassion and insight."
The Rescue List - INDIEWIRE REVIEW
April 13, 2018
"The first proper scene of Alyssa Fedele and Zachary Fink’s “The Rescue List” ends with a harrowing slow-speed chase, an adult man sloshing through the river to catch a crying boy and drag him back to the boat. It’s only later that we can fully appreciate how he saved the boy’s life."
The Rescue List - VARIETY REVIEW
April 10, 2018
"For decades most Westerners thought child labor was a thing of the past, one of those bad-old-days relics left behind with the Victorian era. But economic globalization has brought new attention to myriad surviving networks of exploitation and trafficking, many dependent on the underaged. American documentary duo Alyssa Fedele and Zachary Fink’s “The Rescue List” sheds light on one internationally little-known but persistent case in point: Children used as slaves in the fishing industry of Ghana’s Lake Volta."
The Rescue List - Film Threat Review
April 8, 2018
