Gods Must Be Crazy, Part II, The

This is a film with a refreshingly off beat sense of humor. Filmed on location in Africa, the story follows a lady lawyer and a pilot who must make an emergency landing in a remote area while she's enroute to give a speech. Meanwhile, two young native boys are carried far from home after they stow away in a poachers truck and their father goes in search of them.

Featured Animal Action

A wide variety of animals are seen throughout and much of the filming was done in African conservation parks using the animals that inhabit the parks. A dead elephant killed by poachers in the story, was filmed after it was killed by park officials as part of a cull. (Culling is done occasionally at conservation parks for a variety of reasons.) A honey badger who adds much humor to the story was photographed at times in slow motion or reverse action in order to accentuate his funny gait. Animal bones and skeletons were acquired through taxidermists and supplemented with plastic fakes.
