Mondo cane (1962)
Both documentaries consist of a series of vignettes that provide glimpses into cultural practices (related to cruelty, violence and death) around the world with the intention to shock or surprise audiences. The scenes are presented with little continuity, as they are intended as a kaleidoscopic display of shocking content rather than presenting a structured argument. Despite their claims of genuine documentation, certain scenes in both films are either staged or creatively manipulated to enhance this effect.
