    Classic short film. Not as boring as it sounds and looks on the movie poster. Quite interesting about African American art from around the world, colonialism, capitalism and racism. French speech, English text, somewhat slow sometimes. For a non native English speaker it is quite difficult to keep up in the subtitles as the French speaker speaks fast.
