Netflix has wonderful series and documentaries. The acting and directing are spot on. I've been sucked into La Esclava Blanca ( The White Slave ).
It's Spanish with English Subtitles and set in Columbia in the 1800's. It was also nominated for Novella of the Year, along with best actress, et al.
It revives the era of slavery and tells the story of Victoria, a woman whom everyone knows as a marchioness who came to America to marry a prosperous merchant of the region. However, the truth is that, years ago, in the same city she was rescued from death and raised in secret by slaves who became her family. Wrested from the hands of her loved ones, Victoria returns impersonating another person to seek justice and free her family.
I am halfway through this endless series. There are times I want to just stop, but feel like I have been pulled into a bad movie where I can't help but want to see just how bad it could get. However, and I do say however, there is a very important vein running through this series that touches on the inequality and treatment of black people forced into slavery by a white Spanish plantation owner ( among others ). It's that very vein that keeps me attached to the storyline.
I don't think I stumbled across this series by accident. It does help if you know enough Spanish to not have to stay glued to the subtitles; however, even if you don't, this will give you a glimpse of how Columbia mirrored other countries in its treatment of slaves during a period of supposed abolition via the Law of the Womb, i.e. - any child born into slavery will be free when they turn 18.
