Storyline

This mondo film depicts graphic scenes from the Asian continent. We witness a mass piercing in India and cremated remains of human bodies dumped into the Ganges river in clear sight of bathers. The camera then shows Japanese sex clubs which reenact bizarre sexual rituals and S&M fantasies. There is also a very graphic sex change operation in Singapore. There is also midget and female wrestling featured to round out the fun. Written by Sujit R. Varma

It's not just about Far East People
31 August 2013 | by fietboySee all my reviews

As I was watching the documentary, I began to think how cruel are we! The documentary had a pity accent to the people of Far East, the narrator says it's brutal to kill for example a turtle like that or it's against humanity to eat snakes or bats! I bet if people of Far East had our technology they would produce a documentary like this: Oh look Muslims eat Sheep,Cow,Camel,Ostrich...! How can a human eat something like that! (Of course none of you have seen how Muslims kill a camel!) Or, Oh my God look how Christians kill and eat a Pig!! Please open your Eyes! at last i recommend you to watch the documentary '' Earthlings'' to see it's not only people of Far East!
