Movie Info

This documentary urges viewers to help end the global slave trade, portraying a contemporary epidemic in which countless underprivileged and anonymous people -- often young women and girls -- are sold into various forms of bondage in all corners of the world. The film makes its points through commentary from experts like Princeton University professor Cornel West and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, and with performances by socially conscious musicians such as Talib Kweli.

Critic Reviews for Call + Response

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (1)

  • How much impact Call + Response will have is anyone's guess. But when you see a 4-year-old sex slave, ignoring this crisis is no longer an option.

    October 10, 2008 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • All in all, Call + Response makes alarmingly clear how ugly, pervasive and out-in-the-open the trade in humans for sex or labor often is, from the expected places -- Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia -- to our own backyard.

    October 10, 2008 | Rating: 3/5
  • It's a documentary with its heart and its outrage in the right place.

    October 9, 2008 | Full Review…
  • Laced with the potent music of a dozen bands and solo artists, Call Response is an urgent call to arms in the war against modern slavery.

    October 17, 2009 | Full Review…
  • The piece is well-executed, and compiles some strong takes from folks that are calling out modern-day slavery and are determined to topple its infrastructure.

    November 10, 2008 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Commendable if not compelling.
