The River Used to be a Man Excerpt (2011)
Director Jan Zabeil continues in a recent strain of German films working out national dilemmas by exploring Europe’s engagement with Africa. A German actor visiting a rural waterway enters an existential fog while attempting to find meaning in ancient tradition. But the narrative here is only a gesture towards the full meaning: what can divination, memory and traditional belief mean to a man so far outside them?
