Tree of Iron

United States, 1988


This is one of the few films to document archaeological work on ancient civilizations in Africa. It also deals with an important subject, African iron smelting, and presents convincing evidence for early indigenous technologies far more complex than previously expected.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
