Amazing video, thanks so much. How on earth did you find it?
Amazing footage. Quite hard to watch - not just the procedure but the mishapen heads of the other patients. It's hard to believe that a simple headache could lead to such an operation.
Does not necessary have to be headache. I think in this case it's for a spiritual reason. The shape of the head is for a purpose.
Pretty ethnocentric. It's hard to believe this documentary was made only ten years ago.
The producers of A Hole in the Head uploaded it to YouTube a few weeks ago; they have a YouTube channel which contains several other clips from the documentary.
The footage in this clip is actually taken from a 1964 mondo film called Kwaheri.
