Bound for Freedom Film
Humanitarian photographer Lisa Kristine makes it her mission to seek out and document global slavery. Director Erica Jordan follows Kristine as she negotiates her way into Sonagachi, the largest red-light district in Kolkata, India, and the subject of the Academy Award-winning Born Into Brothels (MVFF 2004). There, Kristine shoots portraits of the enslaved women while Jordan records their sessions with a hidden camera. Undeniably the focus is on Kristine, but what expands its scope is her quest to keep her eyes wide open and document the world before her, in all its despair, beauty, and hope.
