A Story of Bones

United Kingdom
2022 — 95' / Color



Annina van Neel was employed as the Chief Environmental Officer overseeing the construction of an airport on Saint Helena, a British colonial outpost a long way from Namibia, where van Neel grew up. But when a burial site is discovered, holding the remains of some 8,000 slaves, her role dramatically shifts. Haunted by the injustice of South Africa’s Apartheid past, and the desecration of these sacred African burial grounds, van Neel seeks justice for the remains in a campaign that exposes Britain’s deeply troubling ties to its colonial legacy.
