Cannibal Tours

This 1988 documentary film directed by Australian director Dennis O’Rourke delves into the ethnographic modes of representation in a small area in Papua New Guinea and the very nature of modernity.

Cannibal Tours follows a group of ecotourists from the United States and Europe as they travel through the villages of the Sepik River in Papua New Guinea. We witness how they try to blend in with the people and take part in the sacred ceremonies. The film captures how these tourists begin to dehumanize themselves and reveal ethnocentrism to the camera as they live the day by day exotic ways of the Sepik River people. We get to learn more about cannibalism and its other symbolisms.
