Depressing documentary
11 February 2000 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This documentary is more black than white, not only because of the very dark period in history it portrays, but also because of the excessive use of stills, instead of moving pictures. It is very well done, but I feel it should have been still more interesting if it hadn't been so slow. I understand that the director would like us to have time for thought while seeing it, but it's definitely too slow. Anyway, see it if you've got the chance, as it painstakingly explains the views of respected doctors and scientists about race. The most chilling scene is a clip from "The Black Stork" from 1917.
