We Come As Friends

WeComeAsFriends 550“…a surreal, moving, infuriating and persuasive argument that in South Sudan, there’s nothing post about colonialism.” –Manohla Dargis, New York Times

A dizzying, almost science fiction-like journey into the heart of Africa, WE COME AS FRIENDS is a modern odyssey. At the moment when Sudan, the continent’s biggest country, is being divided into two nations, an old “civilizing” ideology re-emerges – one of colonialism and a clash of empires – with new episodes of bloody (and holy) wars over land and resources. Academy Award® nominated director Hubert Sauper takes us on a voyage leading us into the most improbable locations, in which Chinese oil workers, UN peacekeepers, Sudanese warlords, and American evangelists ironically weave common ground in this documentary.
