Storyline

Plot Summary

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 Sujit R. Varma

Goofs When the native man is shot by the mercenaries, he is shot in the back but falls backwards, moving against the laws of physics. This is one aspect that proves the scene is a phony. See more »
