Ghostland accompanies a group of Ju/'Hoansi bushmen out of the Kalahari to the modern Namibia and Europe. A journey to the world of the 'ghosts' with tables turned: no longer the research specimen but the researcher, not the tourist attraction but the tourist, not the beggar but the teacher.
It is simultaneously a challenge as well as a brand new opportunity for “them” as well as “us”. A view on contradiction, a mirror in which we have to face ourselves, that exposes our “civilized” world as well as our modern rites; an exchange of roles viewed through the eyes of an ancient but dying period.
