A journey in search of answers.
Two filmmakers, Elena and Saitabao, take a Kenyan artifact from a German museum, produce a 3D scan and embark on a journey back to its roots. The only information about the object was that it entered the museum in 1903. Why don't the museums know more about it? European museum cellars are full of African artifacts, they are stored, imprisoned, and treated with chemicals - a loss of culture. Because each of them has its own story. This film takes you on a journey to find answers about this old object from the Kikuyu tribe. With a digital art installation in their package, Elena and Saitabao started a new conversation about the issue of colonial belongings, identity, fear, and anger in Kenya.
