O'Rourke & Associates ; Los Angeles, CA : Direct Cinema Ltd., 77 mins. Following the Sepik River in New Guinea, interaction between Western tourists (German, Italian, American) and Papua New Guineans. Both the tourists and the tribespeople comment on each other, highlighting both culture clash and the ways in which the two groups are alike. There is no narrator (which is good), and the video is rather long but it shows nicely how odd the Westerners look when in the tribal context.
