Please Join me to Welcome Documentary Film Maker Guenny Pires.July 6,2012 at the Creek side Inn Hotel,3400El Camino Real Palo Alto. Modern Slavery In Africa. An Eye Opener,you cannot afford to miss.­
. In 2010 “CONTRACT” was nominated for Audience Favorite Documentary Award at the 18th annual Pan African Film & Arts Festival where it had its World Premiere. “CONTRACT” became the first Cape Verdean and São Tomé and Príncipe film ever to be the recipient of an Award for Best Documentary Filmmaking at the 12th Annual Roxbury International Film Festival. Director Pires’ film is not only a powerful emotional experience, but also an unyielding look into the past and the legacy of slavery, poverty, family, and love.

The production of “CONTRACT” is by Txan Film Productions & Visual Arts, Inc. Filmmaker Pires explores through filmic dimensions aspects of African Diaspora's history and culture that are not widely known, or are normally overlooked in popular mainstream and scholarly discourse.
Take a look at “CONTRACT” trailer to preview this wonderfully documented heartfelt story­.
