About the film
Babakiueria is a drama pretending to be an ethnographic documentary examining the customs of the white natives of ‘Babakiueria’, from the perspective of the country’s black colonisers.
Babakiueria is named so as a result of first contact between the colonisers and the natives: arriving at a barbecue area, the settlers ask the locals, "what’s this place called?". Presenter Duranga Manika (Michelle Torres) looks back at this moment and at white people’s place in contemporary Babakiuerian society. She also spends time with a ‘typical’ white family.
