Summary
This film depicts two journeys. The first is that of a group of wealthy bourgeois German, Italian and American tourists on a luxury cruise up the mysterious Sepik River, in the jungles of Papua New Guinea -- the packaged version of a "heart of darkness." The second journey (the real text of the film) is a metaphysical one. It is an attempt to discover the place of "the Other" in the popular imagination. It affords a glimpse at the real (mostly unconsidered or misunderstood) reasons why "civilized" people wish to encounter the "primitive."
