Tony Buba’s documentary Ghosts of Amistad is based on Marcus Rediker’s The Amistad Rebellion: An Atlantic Odyssey of Slavery and Freedom. The film follows Marcus, Tony and a team of researchers as they travel to Sierra Leone to visit the home villages of the rebels who seized the slave schooner Amistad in 1839. By talking with village elders, fishermen and truck drivers, the team recovers the lost history of a key battle in the struggle against slavery.
