Description

Kyle and Jen, estranged siblings, travel from New York City to rural Pennsylvania to pack up the home of their recently deceased mother. While there, they make a discovery that turns their world upside-down. This is a serious movie about life that collides with a funny movie about death. It’s a story about family, loss, secrets, letting go, and starting anew.

WE COME AS FRIENDS

Hubert Sauper
France/Austria
Mon. Oct 6, 7:00 pm, Rio
Thu. Oct 9, 4:00 pm, SFU-GCA

Skipping across South Sudan in a plane he built himself, uncompromising Oscar-nominated documentarian Hubert Sauper (Darwin’s Nightmare) reveals how the world’s newest country is being carved up by foreign multinationals and missionaries. “A surreal, moving, infuriating and persuasive argument that in South Sudan there’s nothing ‘post’ about colonialism.”–The New York Times. Winner, Special Jury Prize: Cinematic Bravery, Sundance 2014.
