Caniba is a fresco about flesh and desire. It reflects on the discomfiting significance of cannibalism in human existence through the prism of one Japanese man, Issei Sagawa, and his mysterious relationship with his brother and carer, Jun Sagawa. Moving away from the whirlwind cinematography of Leviathan towards a malevloant drifting camera that binds us in close intoxicating proximity to Issei Sagawa, filmmakers Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Véréna Paravel again push documentary and ethnographic filmmaking to its limits.
