WE COME AS FRIENDS

by Hubert Sauper

synopsis

The second part of Hubert Sauperʼs cinema trilogy (slavery - colonisation - globalisation) in which Darwin's Nightmare constitutes the third part. We come as Friends intends to illustrate colonisation as a human phenomenon in an explicit manner as well as in a metaphoric sense without suggesting simplified accusations or political propositions. It will not be a historical film since colonisation as well as slave trade are still happening today - in a modified way, a more industrial, massive and more global fashion than a hundred years ago.
