Co-directors Curran and Aubrey de Vere shed a light on the atrocities of the transatlantic slave trade. The film follows emigre Annina Van Neel, the Chief Environmental Officer for Saint Helena's airport project, as she uncovers the unmarked mass burial ground of an estimated 9,000 formerly enslaved Africans in Rupert's Valley. Along with a group of disenfranchised islanders, Annina fights for the proper memorialisation of these forgotten victims. Through their struggle, the film exposes the disturbing truths of the UK's colonial past and present, making it a must-watch for anyone interested in social justice and human rights. This film raises core questions as to identity and belonging.
