How Tasty was my Little Frenchman (1971)
Film Screening (Note Time Change!)
Nelson Pereira Dos Santos’ masterful, ironic critique of colonialist discourse, past and present, draws from multiple historical sources – especially German explorer Hans Staden’s 1557 memoir – to tell the story of a French soldier’s experience as a captive of the cannibalistic Tupinambá tribe. Initiated into the tribe, the soldier looks for ways to exploit the tribe’s resources even as they prepare him to be the main course in a ritual feast.
