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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
