  • From the Pole to the Equator

    1986. Italy. Directed by Angela Ricci Lucchi, Yervant Gianikian. This experimental film is drawn from the 1910 archives of Luca Comerio, a pioneering Italian documentary filmmaker who photographed "exotic" peoples from the North Pole to the Equator. The spectral images suggest the disturbing theme of Western man as predator. 101 min.
