Rate this:
Bilal, a 16-year-old slave in Mauritania, runs away from his master in order to find his mother, who had to give him up when he was only 2 years old. Tracking the reunion of Bilal and his mother, this documentary reports on the problem of slavery in Mauritania and the maltreatment suffered by its legions of unpaid, captive workers. Attempts to abolish slavery in the West African country have been made since 1901, but the practice is culturally entrenched; although technically illegal, 20 percent of Mauritania's population remains enslaved.
