Back Amistad

Movie Synopsis

Steven Spielberg directed this story about the 1839 revolt aboard Spanish slave ship La Amistad and the uprising's tragic aftermath. Cinque, an African-born slave (Djimon Hounsou), leads a mutiny against his brutal captors. Because the ship is in American waters, a U.S. court must decide the slaves' fate.
