William Kentridge’s ironic tribute to his hometown, animated on the basis of 25 drawings, is the first film of his “Drawing for Protection” cycle, in which he unfolds the triangle between Johannesburg building tycoon Soho Eckstein, his wife, and the dreamer Felix Teitelbaum. In this film he introduces the central characters of his meta-narrative which, located in a South Africa of the last days of a crumbling Apartheid, becomes an allegorical reflection on socio-political power relations.

What do European tourists expect from a vacation in the “Third World”? The title was taken from the slogan of a travel brochure that invites its customers to get a hearty “taste” of the world. That’s what it’s there for, the advertising’s subtext suggests – a huge smorgasbord for the discerning expert, for the Eurocentric with too much leisure time on his hands who takes the liberty of helping himself at will: on the culinary, sexual, economical, or cultural level.
