Ghostland: The View of the Ju'Hoansi

This culture-clash documentary, reminiscent of The Gods Must Be Crazy, finds a German anthropologist bringing a group of Kalahari Bushmen on a tour of Frankfurt. There, the unusual tourists are struck by the impersonal cities, the shocking poverty, the abundance of food and water and the crazy habits of modern man. Ghostland has both funny and sad things to say about Western civilization. Most of the observations stick to surface details, but it's an interesting lesson in contrasting societies nonetheless. In English and Ju'hoan with English subtitles. 84 minutes Unrated.
