Synopsis: The field of anthropology comes under
the microscope in Jose Padilha’s (BUS
174) riveting ethnography about an
isolated indigenous population and the
scientists who study them. In the 1960s,
the Yanomami tribe of Venezuela were
heralded as a group untouched by modern
civilization. All that changed when the tribe
accepted one American anthropologist into
their fold, Napoleon Chagnon. Over the
following decades a litany of researchers
seeking answers to human existence
exploited the Yanomami, many with
shocking lapses in ethical, moral and
scientific judgment.
