Ushaka

Duration: 6.30 min.
Format: HDV
Year: 2007

Inside the aquarium Ushaka, which means Shark in Zulu, in South Africa, two young women walk around and one is telling the other a tale. The story is If men were sharks taken from Bertold Brecht’s Stories of Mr. Keuner. While walking around in the space looking at the fishes and sharks behind glass windows the women is telling us about a world society taking place in the ocean were men is shark and the ordinary people are categorized into smaller and bigger fishes. In this world order the bigger fish would be allowed to eat some of the smaller ones and that would be alright for the sharks since they would more often get bigger bites in the end.
