☞ In case you missed it, there's a movie being made in which white liberals go to South America to "protest," only to end up getting kidnapped and eaten by a tribe of Brown savage cannibals.
In 2013. Directed by Eli Roth, who said:
“So I wrote about these student activists who want to save these un-contacted tribes in the Amazon… They chain themselves to trees and protest and stream it and hash-tag, and it works… Then on their way home, their plane crashes. And the very people they save are like ‘Ah, food – that’s great!’ It’s like a free lunch, and they are brought back into the fold of absolutely barbaric, primitive man. People that have had no contact with the outside world.
So when we shot it, I wanted to film somewhere that was really, really, really in the Amazon. Really, authentically off the grid. We scouted in the summer-time and went up the river for hours and hours and found this village where there was no electricity, no running water, grass huts. Ten people in a shack. And it looked incredible; it looked like a village from another time, so we asked if we could film there. But I was told that we have to tell them what a movie is because they have no idea. They’ve never seen one. They’ve never even seen a television. So they went back with a television and a generator and showed the village Cannibal Holocaust, which I couldn’t believe. And the villagers – thank god – thought it was a comedy. The funniest thing that they’d ever seen. And they wanted to play cannibals in the movie. So we had the entire village acting in the film. And they speak Quechua – which is like another language from another time.”
I don’t have much commentary, but I want you to pay close attention to the coded language he uses. You might think “this is inappropriate” or “this is rude” or “this is racially insensitive,” but let’s not beat around the bush. This is what white supremacy looks like in 2013 — the idea that a group of people not living by Western standards are automatically “primitive savages.”
The mere fact that he was taken in by an indigenous village, unharmed, and decided to turn around and portray the people who opened their home to him as cannibalistic savages is a disturbing effort to create colonial propaganda. The fact that he listened to a current language spoken by an existing people and called it “another language from another time” proves that he doesn’t view them as real, equal human beings, but as a concept to be exploited for a cheap film.
—this is whiteness..
Quentin and Eli Roth both ignorant dicks
White people STAY fucking up shit. Nobody likes you.
Wow. And I didn’t think I could hate Eli Roth any more.
