This doc executive-produced by Steve James exposes children sold into slavery on Lake Volta in Ghana.
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.
