Where did all the animals go?

Among Africa's antelopes, zebras, giraffes and elephants, lurks another quite extraordinary animal: The Western trophy hunter is unmistakable in his tireless quest for another endangered animal to decorate the walls of his home. In SAFARI Ulrich Seidl combines hunting footage and interviews with German and Austrian hunters, to present a unique glimpse into a hobby that most of us condemn as morally reprehensible. The result is a pitch-black comedy about Western privilege and the inscrutable nature of human beings.
