On Cannibalism
US/Indonesia, 1994, 6 minutes, Color, DVD
Order No. W99276
King Kong meets the family photograph in this provocative experimental video exploring the West's insatiable appetite for native bodies in museums, world's fairs, and early cinema. Intertwining personal narrative about race and identity in the U.S. with layered footage, artifacts and video effects, ON CANNIBALISM looks back at anthropological truisms with outrage and irony.

"...In these times of heated debates around diversity and multiculturalism, ON CANNIBALISM is bound to arouse interesting discussions concerning race, identity and difference. " - Teshome Gabriel, UCLA

    "**** Well done and provocative. An excellent discussion starter. Any school or library wanting a vehicle to motivate thinking about colonialism...should consider purchasing this video."
