The Price of Free Tells the Story of Human Rights Activist Kailash Satyarthi, Whose Efforts Have Rescued 80,000 Child Factory Workers in India | Kailash Satyarthi US

Spoiler alert. There are countless disturbing moments in Derek Doneen’s new documentary, The Price of Free, but perhaps the most upsetting of them all is a bit of footage yanked off the Internet. Telling the story of Nobel Peace Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi, who leads the fight to eradicate child slavery in India and whose Delhi-based organization has rescued more than 80,000 children working in the country’s factories, Doneen cuts to a video made by an American shopper. She’s oohing and aahing about all the cheap, Christmas-themed clutter for sale at one of her local stores—and what makes this so hard to watch is the knowledge that some of this stuff is being made by kids Satyarthi is trying to extract from hidden back rooms where they work morning through midnight. A bedazzled gift box is nice, but…sorta puts Black Friday deals into perspective, right?
