Creative: Savage Short Film

Savage is a British short film written and directed by Denis Dobrovoda and produced by Chasing the Bear Films. It is about Mokonzi, a young man who is brought over from Africa to serve as an exhibit at a British colonial exposition. He is examined, put on display, and abused in the name of science and imperialism. Will his attempt to escape his captors and recover his dignity succeed? Set at the beginning of the 20th century, Savage explores the little-known and shameful history of colonial exhibitions and human zoos, which were an integral part of Western imperialism and served as a justification of racist oppression.
