One Fantastic Film

This really is one fantastic film. Emotionally gripping, Fatalistic as well deeply moving. This film shows the TRUE events on board of any slave ship. I bought this film today by accident at a flea market in Bellmore. I wasn't sure exactly what it would be like. I read the back, saw Djmon Honsu's name and thought that it would be more of a factual documentary. Boy was I wrong. Factual, I believe, but it really shows the hell that it must have been like. Being a black woman I am especially grateful for a piece like this one. Not falsely dramatic like Roots, it was nothing less than an emotional trip. This film is OUR Schindler's List.
