An urgent reflection on indigenous sovereignty, the undead violence of museum archives, and postmortem justice through the case of the “Kennewick Man,” a prehistoric Paleo-American man whose remains were found in Kennewick, Washington, in 1996.
Mixing archival footage, C.G.I., and performance art, this striking short is a reproach to the institutional legitimization of white supremacy. The film questions the scientific authority to determine fact and evidence by examining the anthropological tendency to treat human remains as artifacts.
