Los Angeles, CA, September 14, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- “Still Slaves: The West African Slave Trade Then and Now” will be having its world premiere the LA Femme Film Festival this October. “Still Slaves” is a feature documentary that explores the various forms slavery takes in modern day West Africa, and the impact it is having on the local communities. From sex trafficking to cocoa farms, “Still Slaves” exposes the slavery that continues to haunt this notorious coastline.
This important film seeks to educate viewers around the globe about how they can use their purchasing power to stop funding slavery, and which NGOs they can support in order to make the biggest impact in ending slavery once and for all.
This is Ann Margret Nielsen’s directorial debut. Born in Denmark and currently living in Southern California, she has her PhD in Political Science from Claremont Graduate University. Ann loves to explore the world and has traveled to more than 100 countries. “Still Slaves” was produced by both Nielsen and Shannon Rose (“All Things Must Pass”), and they made it a priority to work with women, including up and coming composer, Jacqueline Macri. They are thrilled for the film to be included in the LA Femme Film Festival.
Damo & Co. Productions is a non-profit documentary production company that seeks to shine a light on untold stories around the world, in hopes of spreading awareness and making the world a better place.
The screening will be held at Regal Cinemas LA Live 14 in Downtown LA (1000 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90015) at 10AM on October 12, 2018. Tickets for the screening can be purchased at www.lafemme.org. This event is open to the public.
