Price of Free
Free Film Screening - Thursday 16 May / 6.00 – 8.30 pm / HWR Berlin, Campus Schöneberg, Building C, Room C.91
Over 150 million children worldwide are victims of child labor, hidden inside overcrowded factories around the world.
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, The Price of Free is a suspenseful yet intimate look at one man's ground-breaking struggle to liberate every child possible from slavery. The film follows Nobel Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi and his dedicated team through gripping secret raids and quests for missing children in the hopes of ending the cycle of poverty.
Refusing to be daunted by the impossible, they have succeeded in rescuing over 87,000 imprisoned children and created a global movement which has resulted in legislation which helps protect children.
