After the screening of his latest documentary We Come as Friends filmmaker Hubert Sauper will give a masterclass on the creation of this complex and humorous documentary.
Best known for political documentary films in "cinema verité" style, Sauper earned world wide recognition for his film's expression, content, and aesthetics.
This year’s Movies that Matter Festival devotes a retrospective to the work of this passionate filmmaker by screening three of his documentaries that, each in their own way, provide insight into globalization and interference by Western governments and multinationals in African countries. Kisangani Diary, the controversial Darwin’s Nightmare and Sauper’s latest film, We Come as Friends.
Hubert Sauper studied film directing in Vienna (Univ. of Performing Arts) and in Paris (Univ. de Paris VIII.) and graduated B.A. (Mag. art.). Hubert teaches film classes in Europe and USA. The last two documentaries he wrote and directed were awarded twelve International Film Prizes.
