Here's a National Geographic style documentary that's alternately exploitive and informative. The film presents a wide variety of ways that humans interact with nature. It depicts the actual footage of a careless man (Pit Dernitz) leaving the safety of his car to film lions close up and ends up being their dinner. Other highlights include natives humping the ground in hopes of bringing life to the land, various big game hunting and last but not least naked hippies. Written by

WARNING: This film contains scenes of horrifying carnage by man against animal, animal against man, animal against animal, and man against man. Filmed around the world, it is the ultimate revelation of the kill. It is entirely authentic. See more »
The tribe that is shown jumping up and down naked is identified as the Lobi. However, in Climati and Morra's later film, Sweet and Savage, the same footage is used, but the tribe is called the Mashoni. Whichever name is correct has yet to be determined. See more »
The closing credits say "The producers are grateful to: Alitalia, for the generous collaboration in trasporting our crews and their equipment". (The word "transporting" is spelled incorrectly) See more »

Italian Mondo movie has all that you'd expect from a film like this. This "documentary" shows everything from cannibals to animal killings to hippies cleaning themselves at an outdoor event. If you're an animal lover then it goes without saying that you should skip this film because all sorts of animals are show being killed and slaughtered. Some of these are animal on animal attacks but there's a lot of footage of men hunting down the animals and killing them. The most outrageous scene comes from an African tribe who believe they must have sex with the ground in order to get the grass to grow. Seeing twenty some men drilling holes in the ground and then having sex with it is something I really didn't need to see. This film isn't a well made movie but it's remains slightly interesting just by seeing these different cultures.
