White Men

  • Italy

MANENO is looking for a cure for his wounds. SAMSON works as gardener in the town acqueduct. ALFRED is following the case of a man who has been mutilated in an aggression. Mr WHITE is working at his next concert. These men live near Lake Victoria, an area abundant with stories of sudden richness and miracoulus potions, or empty graves and immortality. It is in this region that white men, albinos like the four main characters, are often hunted to become tools of witchcraft.
