88 Days a Slave, a new documentary by Master of Media graduates Christina Stenseth (director/producer) and Rebecca Small (producer), has been approved for fiscal sponsorship by DAF (Documentary Australia Foundation). At farms all over Australia, desperate young backpackers are being exploited, underpaid and sexually harassed. They work long hours, with terrible pay and conditions, to fulfill their 88-day farm work requirement which enables them to get their second-year visa. See the trailer.
88 Days a Slave will feature in Stories that Work on 16 October 2019, a day designed to bring together philanthropic organisations, NGOs and social impact documentaries.
