Synopsis / Plot
Statues Also Die traces the devastating impact of French colonialism on African art. As Resnais' co-director, Chris Marker, stated, "We want to see their suffering, serenity, humor, even though we don't know anything about them." Their film shows what happens when art loses its connection to a culture. Consequently it was banned in France for 12 years.
