AKA L’OCCHIO SELVAGGIO
One of the most controversial, devastating Italian films of the 1960s takes an unflinching look at the world of mondo filmmakers who try to capture the brutality of real life in front of their lens… at any price. Paolo (Philippe Leroy, The Night Porter) is a documentarian on a mission to see the world and present human nature in its truest, rawest form, even if it means depriving his crew of water in the desert or infiltrating deadly, war-torn regions of Vietnam to find new violent extremes for his next production.
Originally a co-director of the notorious hit Mondo Cane, Paolo Cavara (Black Belly of the Tarantula) takes an inside look at a world gone mad where the act of filmmaking itself carries a high mortal price. Still startling today, this acclaimed production also stars Delia Boccardo (High Crime) and Gabriele Tinti (Lisa and the Devil) and features a legendary, haunting soundtrack by easy listening legend Gianni Marchetti. Once you’ve seen it, you’ll never look at a camera the same way again.
