Skipping across South Sudan in a plane he built himself, uncompromising Oscar-nominated documentarian Hubert Sauper (Darwin’s Nightmare) reveals how the world’s newest country is being carved up by foreign multinationals and missionaries. “A surreal, moving, infuriating and persuasive argument that in South Sudan there’s nothing ‘post’ about colonialism.”–The New York Times. Winner, Special Jury Prize: Cinematic Bravery, Sundance 2014.
