Applied Theories of Expanding Minds

Set in a future Kenya long after the Chinese have left, Lena Bergendahl, Jennifer Rainsford and Rut Karin Zettergren‘s new short film rejects the codified coloniser-colonised relationship and explores the possibilities of an emergent hybrid 21st century culture. This excerpt from their film offers a playful take on the effects of Chinese imperialism on the psyche of a people.
