At the End of Slavery

IJM has recently released its first documentary about the issue of modern-day slavery. I was able to view this documentary back in September when I was at training in Washington DC.  This film is a powerful look into what is going on around the world today. The information below is some general information about the film and how it can be used to educate people about this issue. At the End of Slavery offers interviews from those rescued from slavery, and it also includes interviews with modern-day slavery experts.

More than anything, this film offers a message of hope and restoration. Please visit the sight to learn how you can host your own screening of At the End of Slavery.

About the Film

Narrated by actor Danny Glover, At the End of Slavery: The Battle for Justice in our Time takes you inside the violent and ugly business of modern-day slavery — the buying and selling of human beings — from the brothels of the Philippines to the brick kilns of India.

Undercover footage and first-person testimony from former slaves and respected experts expose the enormity of the crime — but a remarkable strategy and the courage of today’s abolitionists offer hope for a final end to this brutal trade.

Shot on location in the Philippines, India, Cambodia and the U.S., At the End of Slavery takes you to the frontlines of today’s battle for justice and includes true stories of former slaves and undercover footage from police operations to rescue children from brothels. International Justice Mission’s investigators, lawyers and social workers and their clients, along with other leading abolitionists and anti-trafficking experts, show that there is nothing inevitable about slavery. Law enforcement success in finding and rescuing victims, and prosecuting perpetrators, demonstrates the real possibility of an end to this trade.
