Schlafkrankheit (Sleeping Sickness)
A German doctor (Pierre Bokma) battling Sleeping Sickness in rural Cameroon fears that he will be a stranger in his own country as the end of his post draws near, and he prepares to move back home with his wistful wife, and their teenage daughter.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Shot in Cameroon, the multi-prism film is thoroughly European in its perspective of Africa, the real star, while calling into question Western attitudes toward developing nations."
‑ Kent Turner, Film-Forward.com
"Trans-global cross-currents and the continued practice of neo-colonialism are what's at stake in Ulrich Köhler's haunting, oneiric Sleeping Sickness."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Slant Magazine
