A surreal, moving, infuriating, and persuasive argument that in South Sudan, there’s nothing post about colonialism. -- New York Times
When South Sudan claimed its independence in 2011, filmmaker Hubert Sauper was there to capture the overwhelming instances in which outside parties took control of the country—to the detriment of its citizens. This macro view of globalization is a reminder that imperialism still exists in Africa, just in a new form. Presented as a series of vignettes, each sequence could stand alone as a surreal and enraging short film. Winner of the 2014 Sundance Special Jury Award and the 2014 Berlinale Peace Film Prize. 2014, France/Austria, in English, Chinese, and Arabic with English subtitles, DCP, 110 minutes.
