Mondo Cane

This is the film that started the mondo craze. Directors Jacopetti, Prosperi and Cavara scoured the globe for oddities and curios to titillate Western audiences. Mondo Cane is a kaleidoscopic tour of perverse rituals and pseudo-anthropological tidbits accompanied by sardonic narration and an award-winning score by Riz Ortolani. Mondo Cane introduced a new style of sensationalist cine-journalism that resonates in twenty-first century culture. Much copied and often parodied, this is a rare opportunity to see a genuine cult classic.
