Godfathers of Mondo, The


UK| 2003. 90 mins.

This is a lucid and intelligent study of the filmmakers behind the ÔMondo’ movies that shocked audiences in the 1960s and ’70s. Films like Mondo cane and Africa aiddo (both co-directed by Gualtiero Jacopetti and Franco E. Prosperi) were exploitation pictures masquerading as important anthropological documentaries about strange and exotic parts of the world.
