The Academy Award nominated film Twelve Years a Slave was presented at the United Nations by its director Steve Mc Queen. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said the film was hard to watch, but there can be no turning away "from the horrors of slavery as it was practiced then and not from the forms of slavery that exist today."
