MONDO CANE
"All the scenes you will see in this film are true. If they are shocking, it is only because there are many shocking things in this world..." Filmed in every corner of the world, this landmark epic explores the culture of life and death, the anguish of man and beast, and the taboos of sex and religion, all amidst the barbarism of civilization gone insane. Sometimes beautiful, often horrifying yet always surprising, it remains one of the most disturbing and controversial films of our time. This is the original 'Shockumentary' that started it all. This is MONDO CANE.

MONDO CANE 2
Two years after the international smash MONDO CANE became the most controversial documentary of its time, the filmmakers again ignited a firestorm of outrage and acclaim as they traveled the globe to film an all-new exploration of primitives, penitents and perversions in a world gone mad. From the burning monks of Saigon to the slave markets of the Sudan, from religious hysteria to ecological horrors, from sex and art to life and death, this is an odyssey of beauty and barbarism that goes far beyond anything moviegoers had ever seen before. This is MONDO CANE 2.

WOMEN OF THE WORLD
"The camera strips woman right down to her skin," proclaimed the ads, "...lays bare the secrets of her mind and body!" Here is the female of the species as mothers, murderers, warriors and whores, respected as high-powered executives and objectified as bodacious bombshells, grasping for eternal beauty and even engaging in "unnatural friendships." From love in the streets of Paris to death on the African plain, the MONDO masters turn their unflinching eye on all the things never before known - and never before shown - about WOMEN OF THE WORLD.

AFRICA BLOOD & GUTS
“What the camera sees it films pitilessly, without sympathy, without taking sides,” it begins. “This film only says farewell to the old Africa and gives the world a picture of its agony.” Here was a world now ruled by rebels and refugees, plunderers and poachers, mercenaries and murderers, a land suddenly aflame with brutality, racism and unspeakable slaughter. 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. This is AFRICA BLOOD & GUTS!

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. This epic recreation of the American slave trade atrocities was both condemned as depraved exploitation and acclaimed as an unprecedented cry of Black anguish and rage. The Detroit Chronicle hailed it as “a graphic, moving, nerve-paralyzing film.” Legendary film critic Pauline Kael called it “the most specific and rabid incitement of the race war.” Three decades cannot diminish GOODBYE UNCLE TOM’s impact or quiet its controversy.

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. From their life as journalists and career as filmmakers, through success and scandal, from the tragic misunderstanding that made them international criminals to the reasons behind their bitter break-up, Jacopetti and Prosperi reveal the startling and often surprising stories behind their infamous films. Forty years later, they remain passionate and proud, defensive and daring, and as confrontational and controversial as ever. They are THE GODFATHERS OF MONDO.

THE FIFTH CORD
“I am going to commit murder,” intones the faceless killer. “I can imagine the thrill and pleasure I will experience as I stalk my victim. There must be no mistakes!” But when four trendy socialites are brutally murdered, an alcoholic reporter (a terrific performance by Franco Nero) begins to unravel a twisted trail of clues. Can this desperate journalist stop a depraved psychopath before he himself becomes the fifth victim?

FORBIDDEN PHOTOS OF A LADY ABOVE SUSPICION
International beauty Dagmar Lassander (HATCHET FOR THE HONEYMOON, HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY) stars as a repressed young wife whose traumatic sexual assault triggers a depraved obsession with her attacker. But when pornography and perversion lead to blackmail and murder, passion suddenly takes a very deadly turn. For a woman enflamed by her own violent desires, is any crime too extreme?

THE PYJAMA GIRL CASE
When the mutilated corpse of a young woman is found on an Australian beach, retired detective Thompson (Ray Milland of THE LOST WEEKEND and DIAL M FOR MURDER) involves himself in the investigation. But before they can find the killer, the police must first identify the victim. Who was this once-beautiful girl found clad only in yellow pyjamas? Why would the authorities put her nude body on public display? What sexual depravity did she endure before her murder? And even if Thompson can crack the baffling case, will he survive to see her killer brought to justice?
