(Hubert Sauper, France/Austria, 2015, 110 min., in English)
Winner Berlin Festival Peace Film Prize,   Winner Sundance Festival Special Jury Award

A surreal and breathtaking portrait of South Sudan, in the throes
of a post-colonialism that is “post” in name only.  More than a
political pamphlet, the film is a mosaic of images that get you
to feel what people there feel.  A voyage within a people.
