Director Gualtiero Jacopetti and his "mondo" films started an entire category of degrading shockumentaries which deal with topics like cannibalism, animal torture and killing, sexual oddities, and all manner of animalistic, brutal behavior in human culture. La Donna nel Mondo is one in this series which tended to go from bad to worse. This is anything but an anthropological, sympathetic overview of women in world cultures but more a voyeuristic tour at what might seem to be the most shocking scenes to a Eurocentric audience.

AFRICA BLOOD & GUTS: At the risk of their own lives, the filmmakers' cameras captured it all. The result is a daring and disturbing work that ranks among the greatest achievements in documentary cinema, an experience that remains as shocking - and shockingly relevant - as it was 40 years ago. GOODBYE UNCLE TOM: It was advertised as "The first motion picture based on historical facts about the rise and revolt of slavery in America." It became one of the most reviled and misunderstood films of its time. THE GODFATHERS OF MONDO: For more than four decades, they have remained among the most brilliant and misunderstood directors the world of cinema has ever seen. Now in this all-new documentary feature, Gualtiero Jacopetti and Franco Prosperi finally have their say.
