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. With director Ulrich Seidl's trademark brand of laconic humour and signature tableaux composition, this latest work by the Austrian provocateur has rarely been seen outside of Europe. It begs the question – just what drives these people who kill for sport?
