Item Description

Drama: Marysia Zurkowna, a country girl, is taken captive by slave traders, who tell her to go visit her sister in Brazil. When she gets there, she witnesses her sister`s death (her sister was also controlled by the slave traders), and is later rescued by Polish sailors.

Dramat Sensacyjny: Wiejska dziewczyna Marysia Zurkowna pada ofiara szajki handlarzy "zywym towarem". Za ich namowa jedzie do swej siostry do Brazylii. Jest swiadkiem jej smierci (siostra tez byla ofiara handlu kobietami). Marysie ratuja polscy marynarze. Akcja polskiej policji doprowadza do unieszkodliwienia calej szajki. Dramat sensacyjno-obyczajowy, zrealizowany pod protektoratem i przy udziale Polskiego Komitetu Walki z Handlem Kobietami i Dziecmi, poziomem artystycznym wyroznial sie korzystnie sposrod innych filmow tego gatunku. Spolecznie uzyteczny, ostrzegal bowiem naiwne dziewczeta przed grozacym im niebezpieczenstwem. Z licznej obsady na uwage zasluguja Kazimierz Junosza-Stepowski i Stanislawa Wysocka, wystepujaca w malym epizodzie.

Cast: Maria Bogda, Nora Ney, Jadwiga Andrzejewska.
Directed by Michal Waszynski
1938, Black & White, 73 mins.
In Polish with English Subtitles.

Captive Women (Kobiety nad Przepascia) is a shocking story about white slavery. The topic is alarming, but it also one that audiences find captivating. White slavery was a popular topic in the early 1900s around the world in both books and films. Captive Women, directed by Emil Chaberski and Michal Waszynski, was made in 1938 and is also based on a novel by Antoni Marczynski. The moral of the story serves to alarm women so that they may be cautious of this potential threat. The story is startling, although such events happened then and now. The main storyline has to do with a woman named Marysia that gets a letter from her sister. Marysia doesnt know that the slave traders re-wrote the letter from her sister who is held captive in Brazil. The forged note says she is doing well and to join her in America. Marusia leaves behind her life in Poland thinking her new one will be better, but her true fate is far worse. We also get to know the seedy ring that is behind the human trafficking. The network uses the cover of a dance studio to find pretty girls who get awarded contracts overseas. The slave traders use manipulation to trick the girls into thinking they are getting a job in America, but they end up in a brothel in Brazil. Just like the other Polish movies from the 1930s, Captive Women isnt crude or vulgar. Although the film delicately handles such a sensitive topic, it does so with much left off-screen. It gives a glimpse of the whorehouse these women get stuck in, much of the details between the scenes are left to our imagination. Although the term white slave is used once, there is no mention of them being sex slaves.
