The RAW footage is 'linear light' linear values and if converted to 
 a working 16-bit file with no LUT will look as you describe, everything
 too dark with high value whites.  The native color space is S-Gamut.
To work on the files, they should be converted to a good working color
 space such as P3, rec709, or ACES, although you can work in S-Gamut
 directly but you will need to apply different saturation amounts to some
 secondary colors.   More importantly,  to work correctly on any particular
 display, you would need to apply a S-curve style film LUT, or apply
 a gamma correction (  1 / 2.6 for a digital projector ) to get to a 
 decent starting point.

For grading the F65 sample reel, I used the ACES workflow and converted
 S-Gamut/S-Log to ACES color space and then previewed the images
 with an RRT LUT in Baselight before color correction.  The RRT was baked
 in when creating the DCDM master.
