DARWIN’S NIGHTMARE
Darwin’s Nightmare, Austria, 2004, 107 min
Regie, scenariu si imagine: Hubert Sauper
VO / Subtitrari in engleza

Candva prin anii ’60, ca parte a unui experiment, Lacul Victoria a fost populat cu un nou animal. Fiind un pradator feroce, Bibanul Nilului a exterminat repede celelalte specii de animale din Lacul Victoria si a inceput sa se inmulteasca. Astazi fileul de biban poate fi gasit in farfuriile din toata lumea… Dar pretul pe care il platim pentru acest biban nici nu ne poate trece prin minte. Zilnic avioane rusesti vin sa ia captura de peste, facand troc cu arme si munitii… folosite apoi de localnici in interminabilele conflicte din acea zona.


Aceasta industrie multinationala de peste si arme a condus spre crearea unor aliante si coexistari stranii in jurul Lacului Victoria – pescari locali, agenti de banca, copii orfani, ministrii ai statelor africane, comisari europeni, prostituate tasmaniene si piloti rusi.
Hubert Sauper s-a nascut intr-un orasel din Tyrol, dar dupa absolvirea facultatii de regie din Viena, paraseste Austria. De-a lungul anilor a locuit in Italia, Germania, Marea Britanie, SUA, iar in ultimii 10 ani in Franta. Tine cursuri de regie atat in Europa cat si in SUA.
Ultimele sale doua documentare au primit 12 premii internationale de film.

ENGLISH VERSION

Some time in the 1960’s, in the heart of Africa, a new animal was introduced into Lake Victoria as a little scientific experiment. The Nile Perch, a voracious predator, extinguished almost the entire stock of the native fish species. However, the new fish multiplied so fast, that its white fillets are today exported all around the world. Huge hulking ex-Soviet cargo planes come daily to collect the latest catch in exchange for their southbound cargo… Kalashnikovs and ammunitions for the uncounted wars in the dark center of the continent. This booming multinational industry of fish and weapons has created an ungodly global alliance on the shores of the world’s biggest tropical lake: an army of local fishermen, World bank agents, homeless children, African ministers, EU-commissioners, Tanzanian prostitutes and Russian pilots.

The author Hubert Sauper was born in a small village of Tyrol, Austrian Alps. He lived in Italy, Great Britain, the USA, and the last ten years in France. He studied film directing in Vienna and in Paris. Hubert teaches film classes in Europe and USA. The last two documentaries he wrote and directed were awarded twelve international film awards.
