Human Cargo now available on DVD!

Human Cargo, a penetrating look at the world of refugees and the people who sacrifice their lives to help or hinder them, is the most nominated show in Canadian film history. Human Cargo is a six-hour television mini-series created by Howe Sound Films and produced by Howe Sound Films and Force Four Entertainment. Filmed on location in Canada and South Africa, Human Cargo was written by Brian McKeown and Linda Svendsen and directed by Brad Turner. It stars Kate Nelligan, Bayo Akinfemi, Nicholas Campbell, Myriam Acharki, Nthati Moshesh, Hakeem Kae-Kazim, R.H. Thomson and Leslie Hope.

“The genius of Human Cargo is that it transcends simple portrayal. It neither hectors nor offers glossy, politically correct stereotypes. Each character is fully formed, a tangle of dreams and contradictions. In an engaging and brilliant way, it lifts the veil on the immigrant experience. It may, as Akinfemi believes, open our eyes.”
