Unchosen, Mogo Freedom and Tea Break Film Festival
As part of the Freedom Festival in Hull, which took place on the 5th to the 7th of September, Mogo Freedom joined forces with the Tea Break Film Festival to showcase the work of Niki Anstasi – finalist from the Unchosen Modern Day Slavery Film Competition 2013.
Unchosen is a UK based charity, using the power of film to help increase awareness of modern day human trafficking, forced labour and all forms of exploitation. Together with the legacy of Hull born MP William Wilberforce (1759-1833), who for 26 years headed a parliamentary campaign for the abolition of the British slave trade, Tea Break Film Festival transformed the Mogo Freedom into one of the world’s smallest ever mobile cinemas, and screened the short film Nicu throughout the festival.
The Freedom Festival strengthens the link between Hull’s unique relationship with the contributions made towards the Slave Trade Act of 1807, and all current forms of freedom and cultural expression.
The winners of this year’s Unchosen Modern Day Slavery Film Competition are set to be announced tonight, keep an eye on their website for more information.
