SYNOPSIS

Africa. In the wild expanses, where bushbucks, impalas, zebras, gnus and other creatures graze by the thousands, they are on holiday. German and Austrian hunting tourists drive through the bush, lie in wait, stalk their prey. They shoot, sob with excitement and pose before the animals they have bagged. A vacation movie about killing, a movie about human nature.

Ulrich Seidl

Ulrich Seidl came to film rather late, by cooperating on the script for Michael Glawogger Krieg in Wien (1989). He then focused on documentaries portraying intimate aspects of human life in a disturbing way; these brought Seidl to the attention of international critics and audiences. Several years in the making, his feature debut Dog Daystook the Grand Special Jury Prize at the 2001 Venice IFF. Seldl’s Import/Export won Golden Apricot in 2007.
