~ 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.

very interesting , if this film is seen widely it will show what goes on and could easily  undermine support for hunting

Wild Africa is in my blood. All life is sacred and interconnected. for the animals are fellow nations caught in the splendor and trevail of the earth.
