A documentary that doesn't shy away
6 May 2017 | by Morten_5See all my reviews

Austrian writer-director Ulrich Seidl has made a name in the festival circle with dramas such as "Dog Days" and the Paradise trilogy. Seidl has also directed a number of documentaries, for example "In the Basment", which screened at the 2014 Venice International Film Festival. His latest film, "Safari" (2016), is a documentary about European hunting tourists vacationing in Namibia in southern Africa. Explicitly portraying the hunt for and the slaughter of wild animals combined with scenes of the Europeans reflecting over their love of the hunt, the film manages to convey both a feeling of excitement and a sense of brutality, leaving the viewer to decide whether it's right or wrong. Unavoidably, the white man-black man relationship adds another dimension to the picture.
