We Come As Friends

A modern odyssey and science fiction-like journey into the heart of Africa. The national referendum in 2011 splits the Sudan, the biggest country in Africa, into two nations. At that time, Hubert Sauper travels the Sudan in his self-made aeroplane. He witnesses the country’s fall into old patterns of “civilizing“, how colonialism is shamelessly pursued again and how the bloody (holy) war over land and resources recommences. In one corner: Chinese oil workers, in the other: American evangelists.
