Brutes and Savages

Brutes and Savages

Director: Art Davis Cast: Richard Johnson



This documentary is in the tradition of Mondo Cane, and shows Peruvians and Bolivians behaving in savage, bizarre and unusual ways by modern Western standards. For instance, in one Inca-influenced area, a llama is sacrificed in the ancient way used before the Conquistadors brought Christianity to the region. In another, a museum's collection of ancient Incan pornographic pottery is explored. There are other scenes which are more repugnant, and are less easily described; at least one involves bestiality.
