A Woman Captured (15*) + ScreenTalk

A Woman Captured

A European woman who has been kept by a family as a domestic slave for 10 years decides to escape the unbearable oppression and become a free person in this outstanding documentary.

Slavery is a European invention, and still exists. Filmmaker Bernadett Tuza-Ritter encounters Eta in Hungary, a woman proud of keeping domestic slaves.

Violent, abusive, and manipulative, Eta has stripped 53-year-old Marish of her belongings, her family and her identity. As trust builds between Marish and the filmmaker, Marish begins to mentally prepare for a dangerous bid for freedom.

Director Bernadett Tuza-Ritter joins us in conversation following the screening.

Presented by Sheffield Doc/Fest.
