Mondo Cane 2DVD
Shocking audiences just as its predecessor did, "Mondo Cane 2" (1963) continues where the the first one left off, presenting a series of travelogue vignettes showing glimpses of of strange and exotic cultural practices around the world. Often gory and brutal, the events documented are meant to surprise those unfamiliar with the cultures shown. Italian directors Gualtiero Jacopetti and Franco Prosperi launched an onslaught of criticism and outrage as they traveled the globe filming all-new examples of primitive and perverted practices. From the burning of monks in Saigon to the slave markets of the Sudan, policemen in drag and other masochistic rituals, the images are symbolic of a mad and vibrant world. This fully restored film from long neglected and poorly cared for prints, is certain to promote shock and awe with its content.
