Impalas, zebras, giraffes, gnus are only a few of the beautiful creatures which can be found in the wild African bush. A perfect place for German and Austrian tourists to vacation in and reawaken their potential primordial hunting instincts. And the perfect excuse for director Ulrich Seidl to film them and eavesdrop on their conversations after bagging their daily spoils. The uncompromising Austrian filmmaker’s latest work highlights the conscious processes behind shooting a black wildebeest, offers us the opportunity to witness the butchering of a giraffe and experience what the mute local support staff potentially get to eat. This journey through a present-day holiday culture is a journey back to long-forgotten (colonial) times.
