A very personal and honest documentary about a black spot in familiy history, totally focused on its subject: simple, but effective, without any unnecessary ingredients. Just original documents - mostly photographs - and a spoken commentaries like text from Rosen's books and diaries. I appreciate the insistence on the spoken word as additional aesthetic value and welcome the abstinence of music.
(3.5 stars) Some beautiful images and an interesting story of discovery. The narration is very dry and boring (always a problem in these Nestler docs), and even though the central person of the documentary was quite a colonialist and racist through and through, the true WIN here are the photographs of the various indigenous tribes. Some really nice and compelling images. My favorite Nestler doc to date.
