Produced by Oscar-winning filmmaker Charles Ferguson, Invisible Hands is the first feature documentary to expose child labor and trafficking within the supply chains of the world's biggest companies. Filmed in six countries including India, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Ghana, it is a harrowing account of children as young as 6 years old making the products we use every day.

Invisible Hands marks the directorial debut of journalist Shraysi Tandon. Participants in the film include Nobel Peace Prize recipient Kailash Satyarthi; New York Times writer and two-time Pulitzer prize winner Nicholas Kristof; journalist/investigator Ben Skinner; author, activist and expert on modern day slavery and human trafficking Siddharth Kara; and Columbia Law School professor Mark Barenberg.

"CRITIC'S PICK! Rich in information and dense with quiet outrage." - Jeannette Catsoulis, THE NEW YORK TIMES

"Searing...sobering...informative. An urgent plea for us all to make conscious choices in our consumption." - Katie Walsh, LOS ANGELES TIMES

"A deep dive into one of the many moral nightmares arising in the age of multinational corporations and global supply chains, Shraysi Tandon's 'Invisible Hands' shows how far we are from eradicating child labor - not just in the developing world, but in America as well. Modest in aesthetic terms but more journalistically serious than many low-budget advocacy docs, the film will be an eye-opener for some, and should add to pressure on executives to stop pretending they're innocent of the crimes contractors commit on their behalf."- John DeFore, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
