Chang (1927)

by Nicholas Sammond

This clip from the beginning of the film, directed by King Kong directors Merian C. Cooper, Ernest B. Schoedsack, showcases the racist conflation of indigenous peoples and non-human animals. Furthermore, it directs viewers to engage with the material from the position of an advantageous and imperialist perspective.
