“It was a great pleasure to work with Unchosen on ‘Nottingham Stands Against Slavery’, an event which helped to build momentum for our campaign to make Nottingham and Nottinghamshire slavery-free.  Film is an enormously powerful medium of communication, and it was fantastic to see how Unchosen’s films inspired debate and opened up new conversations.”
