Synopsis

With the abolition of the slave trade at the start of the 1800s, the Royal Navy started intercepting ships that continued to forcibly transport human beings across the Atlantic Ocean. Though liberated, these people didn’t necessarily return to home. Many died in limbo, on the small island of Saint Helena, a British Overseas Territory. Almost two centuries later, their burial ground remains a restless place, as their bones are unceremoniously excavated for the purpose of building an airport on the island to boost tourism. This rousing documentary follows Annina, an Environmental Officer living on the island, as she campaigns for a proper re-burial and memorial for the Africans whose ghostly presence some on would dismiss, and as she makes connections with people remembering and celebrating Black heritage across the world.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
