This notorious art documentary, for years banned in France, by Marker and Alain Resnais was based on an exhibition with the title 'Why is black art in the Ethnological Museum and Greek or Egyptian art in the Louvre or The Metropolitan?' The filmmakers reject the lack of interest in this art in the context of colonial relations.
