A group of voyeuristic documentarians follow the world's eccentric cultures, 2 January 2003
Author: Mike (rkoegel@earthlink.net) from Selbyside - St. Paul, MN USA

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.
