Between the 16th and 19th centuries, 25,000 convoys of approximately 300 to 450 African captives crossed the Atlantic after a 40-to-50-day journey to the Antilles.
More than a million of them lost their lives.
Thus, to meet the labor needs of its colonies, Europe deported more than 14 million captives from various African countries; for the sole purpose of exploiting them in plantations. We are here at the heart of colonial slavery.
Through reconstructed scenes, with different characters, we discover their destiny and the life that was reserved for them.
