A Vision of Resistance

Synopsis

Peter Nestler explores and wrestles with the contradictory biography of Count Eric von Rosen, a Swedish aristocrat with a serious interest in ethnology and anthropology who undertook expeditions to Africa and South America.

Our take

We jump across documentarian Peter Nestler’s career to his most recent feature. Now working in Sweden, Nestler’s acute analysis turns inward to look at his own family history. A stunning saga of wealth, science, and imperialism, his story makes a personal, cutting progression towards German fascism.
