CALL+RESPONSE seeks the end of modern day slavery. Through a feature film (now available on DVD) and online activist platforms, we are the ground floor of the 21st Century Abolitionist Movement.
CALL+RESPONSE is a feature length rockumentary film that reveals the world’s 27 million dirtiest secrets: there are more slaves today than ever before in human history.
With performances from Grammy-winning and critically acclaimed artists including Moby, Natasha Bedingfield, Cold War Kids, Matisyahu, Imogen Heap, Talib Kweli, Five For Fighting, Switchfoot, members of Nickle Creek and Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers, Rocco Deluca, along with interviews from luminaries on the issue such as Cornel West, Madeleine Albright, Daryl Hannah, Julia Ormond, Ashley Judd, Nicholas Kristof, and many other prominent political and cultural figures.
In addition to the stars and luminaries in the film, the CALL+RESPONSE movement has attracted a vast team: Tribeca, Myspace, thinkMTV, The UN, US State Department, Warner Brothers, Sony Records, Salvation Army, YouthAids, International Justice Mission, Wordpress, Working Assets and Paste Magazine.
CALL+RESPONSE goes deep undercover where slavery is thriving from the child brothels of Cambodia to the slave brick kilns of rural India to reveal that in 2007, Slave Traders made more money than Google, Nike and Starbucks combined.
In CALL+RESPONSE , music is part of the movement against human slavery. Dr. Cornel West connects the music of the American slave fields to the popular music we listen to today, and offers this connection as a rallying cry for the modern abolitionist movement currently brewing.
As a feature film, CALL+RESPONSE has the unique position of being not only a ground-breaking genre-bending film, but due to the fact that this project was funded completely through donations, it operates as a powerful movement with 100% of profits going to fund global field projects on the front lines of this issue. As a non-profit film, CALL+RESPONSE is positioned to change the world by promoting community participation, where all individuals join the fight against human slavery through their own unique talents, interests and networks.
The film is Calling and millions of people across the world are Responding at www.CallandResponse.com. The modern abolitionist movement will be a bottom-up movement where all talents, interests, and skills will be utilized. CallandResponse.com is a ground-breaking online interactive platform, which combines the passion of justice and scope of a Presidential Campaign with the zest of Rock&Roll.
