Ficti­tious black-and-white footage of Afrika in 1925 is alter­nated with colour images from the camera­man’s view­point — so with his camera just visible. The outmoded black-and-white images, slightly flick­ering and with rounded corners, mainly shows nature. In the colour scenes, the man slowly begins to under­stand why his local guides, bran­dishing spears and wearing grass skirts, are gestic­u­lating so wildly. Spinvis’ sound and music support the two narra­tive layers.
