Why Slavery? A Woman Captured


Bernadett Tuza-Ritter

WHY SLAVERY: A WOMAN CAPTURED is about Marish, a 52-year-old Hungarian woman who has been serving a family for a decade, working 20 hours a day - without getting paid. Her oppressors seized her ID and forbade her to leave the house without permission. Treated like an animal, she only gets leftovers to eat and has no bed to sleep in. Marish spends her days with fear in her heart, dreaming of getting her life back. The camera presence helps her realize she is not completely alone. She begins to show signs of trust. After 2 years of shooting the film, she gathers the courage and reveals her plan: “I am going to escape.” The film follows Marish’s heroic journey back to freedom.
