This film, Ghosts of Amsted by Tony Buba and Marcus Rediker, chronicles a trip  to Sierra Leone in May  2013 to interview village  elders about local memory of the  Amsted rebellion (1839),  to search for the  long-lost ruins  of the slave trading factory Lomboko, and  to recover a lost  history from below in the  struggle against slavery.  Rediker will be in attendance at the screening and will answer questions after the  film.
