THE AWFUL LEGACY of colonialism pervades this clinical, unflinching and at times shocking portrait of Curacao, formerly a territory of the Netherlands. This is a place of apartheid-recalling separation, where wealthy white expatriates live and play in luxury, while locals work as servants or low-level employees for Dutch-owned companies. Slavery-era texts narrated over contemporary images of the island provocatively suggest the unstated: the past, in a new form, is very much alive here.
