We Come as Friends

Directed by Hubert Sauper
France, Austria, 2014


A modern odyssey, a science fiction–like journey in a tiny homemade flying machine into the heart of Africa. At the moment when the Sudan, the continent’s biggest country, is being divided into 2 nations, an old “civilizing” pathology re-emerges – that of colonialism and the clash of empires.
