Synopsis


La guerre s’est assoupie. L’herbe fidèle est venue à nouveau sur les Appel-platz.
Autour des blocks, un village abandonné encore plein de menaces. Le crématoire est
hors d’usage. Les ruses nazies sont démodées. Neuf millions de morts hantent ce paysage.
Qui de nous veille dans cet étrange observatoire pour nous avertir de la venue de nouveaux bourreaux ? Ont-ils vraiment un autre visage que le nôtre ?
______________
“When men die, they become history. Once statues die, they become art. The botany of death is what we call culture.” This documentary tackles the difference between traditional African art and royal art, especially when it comes to the relation that the Occident has with this art which it tries to destroy without noticing. The film has been banned in France for 8 years.
