An audience favourite at Sundance this year, A Woman Captured offers an unprecedented, extraordinary glimpse into modern-day slavery. Hungarian director Bernadett Tuza-Ritter spent two years shooting the unfiltered reality of Marish – a 52-year-old woman held captive by a well-off family, working 20 hours a day in exchange for food scraps and cigarettes. With Tuza-Ritter’s support, Marish begins to regain her identity and plot an escape from her 11-year ordeal. From here, the film progresses into a nail-biting thriller, as one wrong move could cost Marish her chance of freedom.     

★★★★★ "Brave and up-close... an outstanding example of how film-making can make a difference."  The Guardian
