~ This film review from Variety discusses a film screened in the Venice Film Festival by Austrian director Ulrich Seidl. Titled “Safari”, it's a deadpan documentary of European trophy hunters who regularly pursue African game.
The film avoids overt commentary, allowing the hunters ample time to express their views. Scenes of animals being gutted are included, as are scene with local Africans working to support hunting expeditions.
The Africans shown never speak, but instead are the behind-the-scenes reality of the hunting.
