The last surviving member is given "the lion's chance" by the tribal leader to be hunted down by a party of tribal warriors. Naked and weaponless, the man is set loose with the hunters hot on his heels, beginning a life-or-death hunt through Africa. Includes essay booklet; interviews; and more.Summary: Glamorous leading man turned idiosyncratic auteur Cornel Wilde created in the sixties and seventies a handful of gritty, violent explorations of the nature of man, none more memorable than The Naked Prey. In the early nineteenth century, after an ivory-hunting safari offends an African tribe, the colonialists are captured and hideously tortured. Only Wilde's marksman is released, without clothes or weapons, to be hunted for sport, and he embarks on a harrowing journey through savanna and jungle, back to a primitive state. Distinguished by vivid widescreen camera work and the unflinching depiction of savagery, The Naked Prey is both a propulsive, stripped-to-the-bone narrative and a meditation on the notion of civilization. - Container.

When a safari group hunting ivory insults an African tribe, they're captured and tortured. The last surviving member is given "the lion's chance" by the tribal leader to be hunted down by a party of tribal warriors.

Glamorous leading man turned idiosyncratic auteur Cornel Wilde created in the sixties and seventies a handful of gritty, violent explorations of the nature of man, none more memorable than The Naked Prey.

Only Wilde's marksman is released, without clothes or weapons, to be hunted for sport, and he embarks on a harrowing journey through savanna and jungle, back to a primitive state.
