Abstract A conversation with Peter Kubelka, focusing on Our African Journey (Unsere Afrikareise, 1966), his short, brilliantlye dited exposéé of colonialism, constructed from sound and image recorded while he was a young filmmaker in the employ of several Austrian businessmen on safari in Africa. Kubelka's revealing stories about the process of shooting the film and his candid discussion of the film's politics bring new light to an avant-garde and documentary classic.
