WE CAME TO DANCE

World Exhibitions are twilight zones in which actual knowledge about the world and exoticism go together with sexual projection and frustration. Till deep into the 20th century, the then superpowers used "Human Zoos" to spread the worldview that “we” are part of civilization, whereas there are others who are not. Departing from the parallels with amusement park the documentary establishes links with our present infotainment society and the position of media (incl. the documentary itself) as an intermediary and identity determining factor for the audience. Is the motto “To see is to know”, which once adorned an anthropological pavilion, still valid?
