filmmaker Malte Ludin explores the questionable legacy of his father, executed
Plenipotentiary Nazi Party Minister Hanns Ludin, in this documentary that
delves into a dark family history while exploring just how stories are passed
down through the generations. It's been 60 years since the end of World War II,
and though the story of Hanns Ludin is now a matter of public record, his
family continues to whitewash their history and deny the brutal facts.' - rottentomatoes

the publication, in 1992, of Professor Kwame Anthony Appiah's In my father's
house: Africa in the Philosophy of Culture, the new discipline of the
Critical Philosophy of Race has flourished among anglophone analytic
philosophers. Yet, Critical Philosophers of Race have tended to confine
themselves to an analysis of racial problems that arise in the politics, and
against the historical background, of anglophone North America. This parochial
focus has given the false impression that the Critical Philosophy of Race is
irrelevant outside of the USA and Canada. For this reason, in this, the first
of three annual international conferences on the Critical Philosophy of Race,
we will challenge this false impression, by showcasing work that demonstrates
the relevance of the Critical Philosophy of Race (a) to the British Isles.
Future conferences will showcase work that demonstrates the relevance of the Critical
Philosophy of Race (b) to the European Union and (c) to the wider world outside
of anglophone North America. The aim of these three conferences is,
successively, to globalise the Critical Philosophy of Race.
