Award-winning director Ulrich Seidl takes a documentary look at big game hunting in Africa and addresses what oftentimes is the illegal killing of endangered species.
In the vast African wilderness, where antelope, impala, zebra, wildebeest and other animals graze by the thousands, German and Austrian hunting tourists go on vacation. They drive through the bush, lie in wait, and stalk their prey. Then they shoot, sob with emotion, and pose in front of the animals they have killed. A vacation film about killing, a film about human nature.
