Culture Thru Film Spring 2009 KTA Cannibal Tours Filmmaker:  Dennis O’Rourke 1987, 70 m. Background on film 1. The film documents and explores the cultural encounter between white tourists and the natives of  the Sepik river in New Guinea. 2. The film shows how the Sepik peoples are now heavily reliant upon the tourist industry.  Although, this has not always been the case.  The film also shows that their current situation is a direct  result of European colonialism. 3. European and American colonialism have had a devastating effect on indigenous cultures around the world,  from the Americas to Africa, Asia, and Australia.  Presently, while we read news about conflicts in these areas, we  should think of how colonialism might have played an historical part in affecting the current ill state of affairs in  these nations. 4.
