A factory owner shows off his mechanical fish that sings «Dont Worry, Be Happy», while homeless orphans fight over grains of rice in the dirt outside. This is just one of many moments in Darwins Nightmare where director Hubert Sauper finds dark irony in the most despairing of situations. A scathing commentary on the state of emergency brought about by globalization, the film takes a harsh look at the suffering of the impoverished fishermen of Mwanza, Tanzania. Grounding his film in the daily life of a specific community, Sauper constructs a deeply disturbing portrait of the appalling inequities that result from the endless pursuit of profit.
