07.09.2023 | THE LIFE AND STRANGE SURPRISING ADVENTURES OF ROBINSON CRUSOE WHO LIVED FOR TWENTY AND EIGHT YEARS ALL ALONE ON AN INHABITED ISLAND AND SAID IT WAS HIS (BE 2023, Benjamin Deboosere)
BE 2023, D: Benjamin Deboosere, A: Oriana Mangala Ikomo Wanga, Bernice Leming, 95‘, OV with english subtitles, DCP
Although significantly shorter than the original book title, the length of shipwrecked Robinson’s stay on the island is still made clear. Plus: the self-centred hubris of a colonialist white thinking that creates categories of domination and oppression with notions like “reason” and “civilization” to subdue the world. However, Benjamin Deboosere’s sparking feature debut is, despite its critical re-perspectivation and re-encoding, first and foremost an extremely entertaining, wonderfully depicted cinematic spectacle. Full of black self-assurance, performative moments and unexpected twists and turns. For instance, temporarily several goats take the helm of the story and ponder their wholly distinct problems on the barren island.
