A documentary on cultural ownership.
The Markell Brothers are doing it again. If you saw the documentaries Feathered Cocaine and/or Trend Beacons you’re in for a treat in their latest endeavour Booty / Stolin list. The brothers have researched how the museums of the former colonial superpowers have hoarded cultural treasures and cornerstones of the former colonies to be displayed as the crown jewels of their museums. When the former colonies want their cultural heritage back, they get the answer that this is not their property. How did it come to this? Is there a solution to this dilemma?
KAM film had the pleasure of color grading the 3 hour documentary mini-series and the 90 min. theatrical version. For a sneak peak you can see their trailer here.
