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.
