The Beast within

La Bestia dentro
by Yves Scagliola Documentary Svizzera, Danimarca/Switzerland, Danmark 2007 74'

Although illegal in most countries, animal fights continue to be a popular blood and guts ritual. But what lies behind this cruel, ancient form of "entertainment"? Employing brilliant, masterfully handled photography and an engaging style, Scagliola investigates behind the scenes of these so-called blood sports in four stories, from cock fights in Bali to globally transmitted robot wars, in which violence and barbarity are made acceptable by replacing animals with machines, sublimating cruelty and the fight instinct.<%YOUTUBE=sD5mGJJzRcE%>
