Trivia:

He filmed The Green Inferno (2013) in an Amazonian village with no electricity or running water, only accessible by motorboat. The village was so remote the natives had never before seen a movie or television. To get permission, Roth's producers brought a generator, television and DVD player and explained to the entire village what a movie was. The film they showed was Cannibal Holocaust (1980). ...

Trademark:

His classical Filmmaking style. Roth photographs, edits, and scores his films like 1970s dramas. He does not use the modern "MTV" style of fast cutting, and prefers the filmmaking techniques not to be noticed, and to take a back seat to the story and performances. See more »
