Director: Dietmar Brehm
The Schwarzer Garten is loaded with dangerous connections. Macumba is overtly menacing, connecting ethnographical footage of tribal rituals with 70s black pornography. The montage construction is consistent with other films in the sextet. Brehm intercuts the labial mouth of an African objet dart, ritual dance and flesh incisions with a black porno couple pursued by hunting tribesmen. The voyeur, however, is absent from the visual framework, moving the film from the psycho-sexuality of the other works into a deeply disturbing sociopathic terrain.
