Tunis / Tunesia
by Christine Bruckbauer, Austria
The videowork Sopa - The Leguanproject by Karo Mast presents the story of a peculiar species, the Green Iguana.
Originally native to Latin America it is afflicted with several notions of mystical powers and therefore used as a source of traditional medicine.
While in modern South America the scaly and spiny animal with its colorfull shimmering body is still regarded as a culinary delicacy, oddly, in Europe it is gainted great popularityunder pet lovers.
In her 16 minutes long film Karo Mast interlocks the exorbitant love of animals by Europeans with the Latin American eating habits, which by the end leaves a special taste in the mouth.
