Blickwechsel (2014)* 

Thu 27.08

2cl Sommerkino auf Conne Island: 21:30

*It’s a German documentary, but listed as an OmU movie by Player:Web, so besides subtitles, it most likely has more than one language (also given that locals in Africa are interviewed). Check out this description: “German documentary BLICKWECHSEL (in English: CHANGE OF PERSPECTIVE) takes an interesting new look at volunteering in Africa: Instead of those of the volunteers we get to hear the voices of the people who work with them in Africa. All those children and teachers, doctors and social workers, priests and nuns who see the white people come, stay a while and go back to that land of legends, Germany. Many a legend is destroyed in the process.” … MORE FROM RISTRETTO.TV
