Visions du Réel 2017 – Official Selection

In this South African safari reserve, wealthy white and black tourists gape in admiration at the lions mating before them. But the reserve is set up on fought-over land on which people continue to, sometimes, poach rhinoceros’ horns. It is of little matter since the clients also pay to know nothing about it. Rebecca Panovka constructs a documentary pamphlet on the “responsible” turn of capitalistic tourism.
