Watch Ghost Fleet 2018 Full Movie Online Free Streaming : It’s like something out of a Joseph Conrad novel: A young man goes out for a night on the town, hoping to meet a girl — perhaps a prostitute. He finds one, follows her into a room somewhere, and, without warning, is jumped by several men and knocked out cold. He awakes the next day on a bed that is moving. When he looks up, he realizes his bed is moving because he’s on a ship in the middle of the ocean. Not just any ship, but a Thai fishing boat staffed by dozens of men like him who were kidnapped on land and forced into slavery, trawling the ocean for fish and seafood until they either die or escape. He will spend the next five years of his life like that.
Ghost Fleet follows a small group of activists who risk their lives on remote Indonesian islands to find justice and freedom for the enslaved fishermen who feed the world’s insatiable appetite for seafood. Bangkok-based Patima Tungpuchayakul, a Thai abolitionist, has committed her life to helping these “lost” men return home. Facing illness, death threats, corruption, and complacency, Patima’s fearless determination for justice inspires her nation and the world.
In Ghost Fleet, the eye-opening new documentary from directors Shannon Service and Jeffrey Waldron, we sadly learn that the story above is not only true, but that it’s just one of thousands of such stories taking place in Southeast Asia — and many other parts of the world — right now. And that it’s possible that the piece of tuna on your dinner plate, if it comes from Thailand, was caught by a man living as a slave on a boat he cannot leave, and where he could be beaten to death if he dares to disobey. Told mainly from the viewpoint of three activists — team leader and labor organizer Patima Tungpuchayakul, former slave Tun Lin and local fixer Chutima Sidasathian — who have dedicated their lives to rescuing victims of the trade (per the end credits they have saved over 4,000 men), as well as telling the rest of the world about this horrific practice, the film follows the trio as they take off on one of their missions from Thailand to the seas around Indonesia, where they hope to save more men from oblivion.
