Dramatic re-creations and interviews are used to tell the story of a young man who, in 1839, was kidnapped in his native Africa, sold into slavery and while being transported on the merchant schooner “Amistad,” led a mutiny which saved him and the other imprisoned Africans from slavery.
The movie’s writer and director, Richard Rivera, will be here to show the movie and talk about the making of it and about the subject of slavery.
