Movie Description

DVD, R, 105 minutes, XENON

The year is 1869. Slavery is a crime punishable by death, yet the skin trade continues, driven by unrestricted greed. Twenty-four captives fill the tiny hull of the slave ship "Argon Miss" off the coast of West Africa. As the ship travels to an unknown destination, its inhabitants begin to buckle under the daily regimen of cruelty and abuse. When an ancient spirit appears from within the wooden planks of the ship calling for release by fire, the captive men and women led by Fyah (Djimon Hounsou - "Amistad", "E.R.") are driven toward escape through a bloody uprising. Shot on location in Cameron and also starring Akosua Busia ("The Color Purple", "Rosewood"), "Ill-Gotten Gains" was written two years before Spielberg's "Amistad", and is a chilling portrait of the spirit of rebellion.

Chapter Selection, "Ill-Gotten Gains At Work", Original Trailer, Radio Interview, Soundtrack (with slide show).
