This documentary video shot in South Sudan is both a work of and commentary upon cultural exploitation. It is a self-consciously 'cinematic' recreation of a journey through a land plagued by the ghosts of colonialism and the present anxiety of conflicting religious and political agendas - both of which can often seem one and the same. Evoking a surreal sense of place, both very present and very distant, the video depicts the hazy lines between notions of 'foreign aid' 'missionary practice' and 'colonialism,' and shows the ways history has of recycling itself.
