The summery of the film Amistad
The narrative of the Amistad is rather a narrative of Freedom. The film depicts how the state of affairs in American and Europe was at the clip. The film opens on the ship the Amistad in a great storm at sea with an African who breaks lose of his boodles with a nail. He begins to liberate most of the slaves around him from their boodles. They break into boxes garnering arms and liberating others. Then the Africans kill all of the crew except for two which they did non kill in believing that the two work forces would take them back to Africa.
The two work forces began sailing to America where the Africans went ashore and began to acquire H2O out of a close by lake. They went back to the ship and an American ship was merely go throughing when they got back. The American ship had taken them confined and proceeded to take the ship Amistad to port.
Once at the port the Africans that were aboard the Amistad where boodles and take captive by the United States Government. A great tribunal conflict would come of this. It would be of who owned them and if they were genuinely free. At the clip you could non take any slaves from Africa alternatively they had to hold been born on a plantation. The two work forces from earlier in the narrative said that the slaves were from Cuba, and in that instance they would hold gotten to sell the slaves because you can non take slaves from African but you can from Cuba. Along with the two work forces the Queen of Spain said that the slaves where hers, the captain of the ship that found the Amistad said that they were his.
The tribunal conflict had began. The whole universe was watching and the southern provinces were prote biting that if the slaves went free that they would win from the Union. And so the conflict went on and on. They had merely about one the conflict when the president realized that if the Africans did win he would non be re-elected into office, so in cognizing that he appointed a new Jude and dismissed the jury. He found a new justice that he thought would surely vote in the authoritiess favor.
The new Jude listened to every thing, as did every 1 else in the tribunal. Then in that tribunal room one of the African from the ship told his narrative of how he was brought to America and how escaped the clasp of his Masterss to be one time once more a free adult male. He told of how they were beaten and of his household and how he was lacerate apart organize them. He told of how they had alterations ships. And how there Masterss threw 50 work forces, adult females and kids overboard.
The lawyer for the Africans had been O.K. a tribunal order to seek the Amistad and he did so, upon his hunt he found a book that was the stock list for the other ship that they were taken from. But what was it making on the Amistad with the names of all of the Africans that were on board the Amistad. This backed up the narrative of the African. And so the Judg ruled that the Africans were free to be released at one time and to imprison the two white work forces who claimed that they were theirs, for illegal conveyance of slaves.
But the president when on to over govern the tribunals determination and moved the instance to the Supreme Court. There they would pay another conflict where they would finally go free and with there taking of wether to remain in America or travel back to Africa. They chose to travel back to Africa where they found a civil war and there small town destroyed.
