The Wildtuin

Rebecca Panovka
2017, 30 min.


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.
