Cannibal Tours

This 1987 documentary by Australian Dennis O’Rourke shows the homogenized, packaged tours being offered to Westerners who want to see the Sepik River region of New Guinea. Its tribal dwellers try or pretend to be what the tourists expect from them, though there hasn’t been a cannibal in the region since the turn of the 20th century. The result is a series of ironic commentaries. 77 min. (JR)
