Disrupting the courtroom proceedings, Cinque (Djimon Hounsou) stands up to chant for freedom, over and over again he proclaims, "Give us free."
This Steven Spielberg-directed exploration into a long-ago episode in African-American history recounts the trial that followed the 1839 rebellion aboard the Spanish slave ship Amistad and captures the complex political maneuverings set in motion by the event. Filmed in New England and Puerto Rico, the 152-minute drama opens with a pre-credit sequence showing Cinque (Djimon Hounsou) and the other Africans in a violent takeover of the Amistad. Captured, they are imprisoned in New England where former slave Theodore Joadson (Morgan Freeman), viewing the rebels as "freedom fighters," approaches property lawyer Baldwin (Matthew McConaughey), who attempts to prove the Africans were "stolen goods" because they were kidnapped. Running for re-election, President Martin Van Buren (Nigel Hawthorne) overturns the lower court's decision in favor of the Africans. Former President John Quincy Adams (Anthony Hopkins) is reluctant to become involved, but when the case moves on to the Supreme Court, Adams stirs emotions with a powerful defense. The storyline occasionally cuts away to Spain where the young Queen Isabella (Anna Paquin) plays with dolls; she later debated the Amistad case with seven U.S. presidents. The character portrayed by Morgan Freeman is a fictional composite of several historical figures. For authentic speech, the Africans speak the Mende language, subtitled during some scenes but not others.

What's touching is it looks like he studied hard the speech around him for weeks in the hope of piecing together that sentence.

A powerful scene from an otherwise ill advised white savior movie. When will Hollywood ever make a movie about slavery that gets the facts right.

We have errantly come to believe that FREEDOM and Rights are interchangeable values, that Equality and Freedom are synonymous. We have been fooled into believing that a condition of dependency on someone else for Food, clothing, shelter, water, healthcare and security equals FREE!!! Our children are FREE for a thousand years to look to their children for Jobs!!! Once upon a time, on the lips of ours was a thirst for FREEDOM, today, they want a kinder and gentler master!!

Black people were equally complicit in the slave trade. They were only too willing to sell there brothers and sisters into slavery for guns and alcohol. The Arab slave trade never gets a mention by black people either. Which lasted longer was more brutal and dealt in lots more Africans. Most blacks don’t even realise it happened. I guess it’s easier to blame whitey for all black problems

This Movie depicts the Spaniards as bad but the Anglos as good. Both cultures had slavery. As did the Dutch or the Portuguese. Were are the sins of the English speaking mister Spielberg? Welcome to the Black Legend once again.

When the camera moves to the black faces watching the trial, it's those of slaves and former slaves who were born in America. They could be multiple generations removed from their original African ancestor and as such the oppressed African American existence is the only one they know. Their ancestral home has all but been removed from their collective memories. In the film, Cinque says that he will call into the past to invoke his ancestors to help him: "I will reach back and draw them into me, and they must come, for at this moment I am the whole reason they have existed at all." For those people in the audience, seeing this man from Africa demand his freedom with such passion and vigor must've made them recall their own ancestors, their great great grandparents who were in the same situation as Cinque, who were ripped from their homes and suffered and struggled and survived. Cinque's demand is the manifestation of the yearning for freedom they all carry, but are powerless to express. Look at their expressions--shock, awe, and inspiration.
