SCREENING: "We Come As Friends" by Hubert Sauper

  • Chase Public 1569 Chase Ave, Ste 4 Cincinnati OH 45223 (map)

Chase Public, Lyrical Insurrection, and Emotion Pictures present:
"We Come As Friends" (2014) a documentary by Hubert Sauper

"A masterfully composed and suitably outraged look at the neocolonialist exploitation of South Sudan, “We Come as Friends” is, after “Darwin’s Nightmare,” the second part of Austrian documentarian Hubert Sauper’s proposed trilogy about the contemporary plight of African countries. Six years in the making, the film observes South Sudan becoming independent, politely pillaged for its resources, and devastated by war; according to Sauper, a number of the villages seen in the docu no longer exist. Amazingly, Sauper helped design a homemade airplane with which to travel the country at will; the film, too, is a purposeful vehicle, lofty in its aims." - Rob Nelson, Variety
