Film: We come as Friends

We rush to see “We come as friends” to IFC yesterday, because it will held only once a day, only a week (i think). Filmmaker Hubert Sauper, who took “Darwin’s Nightmare” in 2004, went to South Sudan with his small air plane and show us who wants to eat up the land. like technicians at enormous Chinese oil refinery, an American authority give the speech at inauguration of a power plant, Christian missionaries from Texas who come equipped with solar-powered talking Bibles etc, etc.. i still can not digest what i saw in the movie, it will need long time.

昨日、IFCで一日に一回、一週間だけ(たぶん)やってる We come as Friends を観に行ってきた。監督のフーベルト・ザウパーは2004年に「Darwin’s Nightmare」を撮った人。今回はものすごく小さな飛行機スプートニクでフランスから南スーダンに行って、中国の巨大な石油精製所で働く技術者や、発電所の開所記念に演説するアメリカ大使とか、村人にソーラーパワーの「読み上げる聖書」を寄贈するテキサスからきた牧師夫婦とかとか、一方で精製所近くで住む人々とか、「文明開化」のために制服を着させられる学生とか、騙されて村ごとを2万5000ドルで売った村長とか、採石場で働く人とかを私たちに見せてくれる。
