      • Nov 19, 2020

        Sabu's first film role has him as a boy wistfully dreaming of a future working for the ubiquitous colonial figurehead as a tracker...until his father gets viciously killed by a tiger. Lush second unit photography of jungle life make this story of peoples happy under the yoke of "benevolent overseers" palatable, but only just so.
