Anti-Slavery International: Facebook Friend

A slave joins the social network.

Editor's Pick

How do you make an anti-slavery message relevant today? An online film by the charity Anti-Slavery International tackles this challenge by imagining how the Facebook profile of a modern-day slave would look. It shows the increasingly desperate status updates of 'Lala', an unpaid domestic servant in London whose employer takes her passport away.

Lala has no Facebook friends, but the ending of the film shows Anti-Slavery International adding her as a friend. The line 'Slavery in London still needs abolishing' appears alongside a link to the charity's website. JWT London created the film on a pro-bono basis with Underworld donating the use of the track 'Glam Bucket'.
