In Suriname, in a small jungle village, blindfolded girls and boys play a kind of hide-and-seek – the one with the monster who catches and eats children. According to local legend, the monster is the village’s only white person, a Dutch man who repairs outboard motors. Alternating between colour and black and white, Ben Russell leads the investigation, meeting the villagers and the infamous European. His camera sensuously explores this small world, where apparitions are never far off. A terrifying rubber white-man mask, frenzied races and scary stories: there are as many participants as elements from which the film constructs itself before our eyes, like a true myth. - RIDM
