Hubert Sauper / France and Austria / 2014 / 110 mins / English, Arabic and Mandarin with English subtitles / Documentary

Winning the Peace Film Award at Berlinale and the Special Jury Prize for Cinematic Bravery at Sundance, Hubert Sauper’s probing documentary reflects the distressed state of modern Sudan. Sauper arrives in a tiny, homemade airplane and interviews an array of exploited local villagers, brash Chinese oil workers, and ethically awry international politicians. They are all fighting for their piece of South Sudan’s recently partitioned state. We Come As Friends is a documentary that is as challenging as it is complex.


This film has been exempt from classification and is restricted to people over 18 years.
