Breadcrumb

Windhoek-born Annina van Neel is set to showcase a documentary shedding light on the practice of slavery in the British Overseas Territory of Saint Helena.

The island is said to be the site of thousands of burial grounds belonging to formerly enslaved Africans.

The documentary, titled "A Story of Bones," through poignant storytelling, questions whether current public discourse and actions adequately address the memorialization of these people.
