Haunting look at the African slave trade
28 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Told through the perspective of a deceased slave, Passage du Milieu is a haunting look at the horrors of the human slavery industry. This film is even more jarring considering these events are still happening in many parts of the world. The filmmakers do a fine job of brining light to a subject that's unfortunately been neglected by the mainstream media. It's an ambitious mix of documentary and narrative fiction, bu might have been even more effective had the filmmakers chosen one or the other and stuck to that format. The story tends to meander at times, focusing on the sad truths of the business, instead of giving the characters momentum or plot twists.
