The Rescue List, which debuted on PBS in 2020 and won the Emmy® Award for Outstanding Social Issue Documentary, is a redemptive story of two children recovering from childhood slavery in Ghana. The story takes an unexpected turn when their rescuer embarks on another mission and asks them for help. The filmmakers, guided by their backgrounds in anthropology, spent many months in the field building relationships with the rescue team, social workers and the children. “We chose to viscerally portray the under-represented personal experience of slavery through our protagonists’ day-to-day lives, rather than through the reductive lens of an issue-based advocacy film, which tends to focus solely on victimhood.”
