“I think this is a great film for anthropology students. It demonstrates many of the hypocricies that exist within academia as well as the types of pressures that many professionals feel within the field. I also think itu0026#39;s a great introductory example for anthropology students regarding ethics, structures of cultures, and the nature of our own culture (how we justify normally taboo items).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI show it to my Introduction to Anthropology students every year. They laugh, they ask questions, and they appreciate the film. I recommend it. Iu0026#39;ve used it for years in Anthropology classes – I have students analyze the Shelmikedmud and come up with more cultural traits. I then follow by having them simulate the type of cultural creations that scifi writers do – creating their own alien cultures.”
