We Come as Friends
A 21st century odyssey – a dizzying, science fiction-like journey into the heart of Africa. Sudan, the continent’s biggest country, whose ancient civilizations have been around since 3500 B.C., is experiencing a humanity-destroying epidemic: modern-day colonialism. The Academy Award® and other prestigious award-nominated Austrian director, in his tiny, self-made, tin and canvas flying machine, leads the viewer into the most improbable locations, allowing for a chance to get to know this frightening, yet richly fascinating world.
“We, the Europeans, we always had to come up with a way to explain to ourselves that we are actually good people while we are killing everyone else on the other side of the world.” H. Sauper
