Cornel Wilde, Gert Van Den Bergh, Ken Gampu, Patrick Mynhardt.
In the early nineteenth century, after an ivory-hunting safari offends a group of South African hunters, the colonialists are captured and hideously tortured. A lone marksman is released, without clothes or weapons, to be hunted for sport, and he begins a harrowing journey through savanna and jungle back to a primitive state. It is both a propulsive, stripped-to-the-bone narrative and a meditation on the concept of civilization.
