Movie Info

The true story of the revolt and subsequent trial of escaped African slaves is documented in The Voyage of La Amistad: A Quest for Freedom. When a group of men and women were kidnapped from the coast of Sierra Leone in 1839, they had no idea what to expect. Conditions aboard the slave ship were beyond belief, with rows of people stacked together and inadequate food and water. Now referred to as the "middle passage," the voyage was often deadly and always inhumane. When the Africans were eventually brought up on charges of piracy and murder, the trial focused on the nature of slavery itself. Alfre Woodard narrates the description of this historic debate.
