Nominally a documentary, this film combines a number of unrelated sequences (both real and staged) -- including a South Pacific "cargo cult", the ritual slaughter of a bull, tribal dances and rituals, and a visit to an ornate pet cemetery -- all focused on the lurid, sensational, and eccentric.

The film was initially rejected for UK cinema and only passed in 1963 after 14 minutes of cuts with heavy edits to the animal killings, scenes showing German drug addicts, and the killing of a man by a bull. See more »
A group of voyeuristic documentarians follow the world's eccentric cultures
After viewing this I must say I was left mesmerized to a degree. You really don't know what is going on the other side of the globe. Some people claim that these events aren't real, and the images are just for a psuedo-documentary, but you be the judge. Me personally, I believe that those things are going on. Even though this film shows its age, it is still a very strong piece of work and will not be easily forgotten.
