About We Come As Friends

Year Released:
The film will be preceded by a short introduction by Director Hubert Sauper. Following the screening will be a post-film Q&A with UNC Asheville Belk Distinguished Professor Mark Gibney and Filmmaker Angel Urrutia. Academy-Award® nominated director Hubert Sauper’s We Come As Friends is a modern odyssey, a dizzying, science fiction-like journey into the heart of Africa. At the moment when the Sudan, the continent’s biggest country, is being divided into two nations, an old “civilizing” pathology re-emerges—that of colonialism, the clash of empires, and new episodes of bloody (and holy) wars over land and resources. Director Hubert Sauper is scheduled to be present. (2K DCP Presentation)
