During a rescue mission into the Amazon rainforest, a professor stumbles across lost film shot by a missing documentary crew.
Robert Kerman, Francesca Ciardi, Perry Pirkanen and Carl Gabriel Yorke were opposed to the real animal death scenes. In the script, was Yorke's character who killed the pig, but due to his refusal, Luca Barbareschi did it without any problem (even during the scene kicked wildly the animal before shoot him). Yorke said that it was very difficult to continue with the scene while he heard pig's agonizing screams, and he was unable to say his lines correctly. He also said that if he would know that animals would be killed during the filming, he wouldn't have accepted to make the movie. Although Pirkanen was in a way an active part during the turtle scene, according with Ruggero Deodato, he cried after that scene and after the death of every animal. Ciardi also spoke negatively about that scenes, especially the monkey and turtle scene, and described last one as the worst experience of her life. After the monkey scene, some people of the cast and crew said that if another animal was killed for an scene, they'll drop out the filming, but nobody could keep that promise.
Man is omnipotent; nothing is impossible for him. What seemed like unthinkable undertakings yesterday are history today. The conquest of the moon for example: who talks about it anymore? Today we are already on the threshold of conquering our galaxy...
During the Shamatari tribe attack, the Yanomamo members whose came to the rescue are visibly laughing, the same that in the Yacumo village fire scene, in which some of the Yacumo members are visibly laughing when they're running into the hut.
