Steeped in controversy, human cannibalism both fascinates and repulses. Many anthropologists argue that cannibalism is an instinctive part of human nature; that it was an institution in many ancient cultures; that people will turn to cannibalism without reservation in a survival situation; and that our very bones are imprinted with evidence that we are creatures who eat our own. Other experts vehemently disagree, questioning eyewitness accounts and taking issue with what archaeologists claim is hard scientific evidence. This feature-length special gets to the heart of the debate by investigating both well-known and little-known scenarios in which humans may have resorted to eating other humans. Featuring powerful reenactments, advanced forensic research, location shooting around the world, and interviews with experts in anthropology and archaeology, as well as survival experts and two survivors of the 1972 Andes airplane crash that resulted in cannibalism, we uncover surprising facts.
