Eli Roth Showed Amazonians Their First Movie

Eli Roth has found his people. With his next film, the cannibalism movie The Green Inferno, gearing up to shoot in a remote Amazon village, Roth was surprised to find out that the 200 extras he’d casted from the village had never seen a motion picture before. It was then that he decided to introduce them to the compelling world of cinema.

“So we brought a generator and set up a television. I thought they were going to show them E.T. or The Wizard of Oz, but they showed them Cannibal Holocaust to see how much they could handle.”

Did it freak them out?

“The villagers thought it was the funniest thing they’d ever seen.”

Roth was later boiled in a large cauldron. They even made him peel the carrots. (Movieline)
