3 things about Paolo Cavara, Gualtiero Jacopetti, and Franco Prosperi’s MONDO CANE

Mondo Cane [1962]

1. A bright blue glazed statue of Rudolph Valentino. Bright blue models rubbing their painted bodies against a large canvas, and each other.
2. After the shark is captured a poisonous sea urchin is inserted in its mouth. The shark is then released and will suffer painfully for about a week before dying.
3. “The ocean is tricky and the Australian boys are getting more and more reckless each day.”
