China's advances into Africa put many old historical traumas in a new light. In Lesotho in the south of the continent, Chinese entrepreneurs have settled down with dreams of new business adventures, while local cattle farmers live off the barren lands. Resources are sparse and an incompatible conflict between world views is constantly smouldering in 'Days of Cannibalism' (which is named after a bar!), which depicts globalisation in slow but merciless action. There are no actual protagonists, but a deep drama under the surface of Teboho Edkins' tightly woven film, which is set in great Western-like plains and lets our thoughts roam freely.
