Subtle and intriguing. -- The Guardian (UK)
This Oscar-nominated documentary is a moving call for action. In a decimated area in Tanzania, only the strong survive when Lake Victoria’s natural species and fishing culture are threatened by invasive non-native Nile perch. With the feeling of a horror or science fiction film, Darwin’s Nigthmare marked an enormous achievement in sociopolitical filmmaking by showing the drastic effects of market globalization. Winner of Best Documentary honors at the European Film Awards and Silverdocs. 2004, Austria/Belgium, video, in English, Russian, and Swahili with English subtitles, 107 minutes.
