Martinique/France 1999, 85 Min., Engl. subtitles

Africa, 1810. A slave ship leaves Senegal on the west coast of Africa headed, with its cvargo of slaves, for the Americas. This eighteen-week sea journey - an eternity of hell - condenses the centuries of cruelty during which countless European ships plied the transatlantic slave trade. The captives on the boat experience every calamity, the height and depths of desperation to heroism.
