Has never been released on any home-video format, & has only been screened in select IMAX Theatres with gigantic screens. The IMAX Corporation also stated that they have no plans to release the film on home-video, but have released a soundtrack with original songs that are featured. The most recent theater that played the film was the Riverfront Park IMAX Theatre in Spokane, WA in summer of 2016. It's screen-size was 89 by 66 feet, until it was selected for demolition by the city against the IMAX Corporation's wishes. See more »
This is a documentary that might have been funny. Or at least ironic. But it is serious. And pointless. There is no evolution, no change. This is only a vacation snapshot. Colorful images. An exploitation of a land like the advertising heavens for the bigger screens. And I am sure the production team members had the time of their lives. And I am happy they got paid for living there. Still, I have seen better wedding movies.
The humor or irony was ironed out as much as possible. Yet, it still surfaces. The people doing their ritual dancing using body paint of unknown origin, but also Colgate toothpaste. In the end I don't know if the villagers playing the savages for the tourists do clean their teeth. Of course their old ways were better. But not without cotton, imported meats, and don't forget gas/oil for their boat engines. I was amused to hear even the fascism budding in the small island where people used to fish with dynamite talk about the big bad foreigners that fish without license.
