by Ulrich Seild, Austria/Denmark/ Germany, 2016, 90’
Rich German and Austrian tourists hunt zebras and giraffes in the nature reserves on the borders between Namibia and South Africa. The filmmaker follows the hunting fights and records voices and thoughts of his protagonists: about the sense of hunting activity, the relationship with Africa, about economy, life and death. Seidl’s direct and precise style doesn’t spare the audience the details of the recorded world, pointing out unmercifully the grotesque shades of a lucid and tragic tale. Safari is an uncensored narration of reality.
