  • A mondo film is an exploitation documentary film, sometimes resembling a pseudo-documentary and usually depicting sensational topics, scenes, or situations. Common traits of mondo films include an emphasis on taboo subjects, portrayals of foreign cultures, and staged sequences presented as genuine documentary footage. Over time, the films placed increasing emphasis on footage of the dead and dying. The term shockumentary is also used to describe the genre.
