Slavery Routes – Documentary screenings and discussions

October 21, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - October 22, 2019 @ 9:30 pm

‘Slavery Routes’ is a documentary in four parts, co-directed by Daniel Cattier, Juan Gélas and Fanny Glissant, with historical advisor Catherine Coquery-Vidrovitch, Professor Emeritus at the University of Paris-Diderot.

This is the story of a world whose territories and own frontiers were built by the slave trade. A world where violence, subjugation and profit imposed their routes. The series traces the history of slave trade from the 5th to the 19th century, using various historical and scientific resources. The narrative is supported by scientific points of view with the filmmakers using compelling visuals to shed light on the different eras. It also looks at the consequences of this history on contemporary societies.
