MEAT IS MURDER
Banned film is based on true story of cannibal who advertised for victim.

If you aren’t a serious gorehound, don’t even go near it. Cannibal is a German film based on the true case of Armin Meiwes. In 2001, Meiwes advertised on the Cannibal Café website for a willing torture victim. A man named Bernd Jürgen Brandes answered the ad. Brandes allowed his penis to be severed by Meiwes for the two of them to eat. They first tried it raw, then sautéed in garlic. Brandes bled profusely from the wound but didn’t die until Meiwes delivered the coup de grace—a knife in the throat. Meiwes videotaped every moment of both the torture and killing.

After Brandes was dead, Meiwes dismembered and froze the body, and ate more than 40 pounds of it over the next ten months. His culinary creativity could have qualified him for a guest spot on Iron Chef. He even tried to grind up Brandes’ bones to make flour. When he finally was caught authorities were embarrassed to discover that no law against cannibalism existed in Germany. And since Brandes was a volunteer who had been videotaped willingly trying to eat his own penis, murder charges were a stretch. The courts eventually imprisoned Meiwes for manslaughter, and later tried and convicted him for murder because he simply needed to be put away permanently—victim’s consent to be eaten notwithstanding.

The film Cannibal, under the direction of Marian Dora, deals only with events directly related to the torture and killing. It is unflinching, unapologetic, and absolutely verboten for the faint of heart. It was banned in Germany, but earned a U.S. release on dvd today in 2006.

1945—Hitler Marries Braun
During the last days of the Third Reich, as Russia's Red Army closes in from the east, Adolf Hitler marries his long-time partner Eva Braun in a Berlin bunker during a brief civil ceremony witnessed by Joseph Goebbels and Martin Bormann. Both Hitler and Braun commit suicide the next day, and their corpses are burned in the Reich Chancellery garden.
1967—Ali Is Stripped of His Title
After refusing induction into the United States Army the day before due to religious reasons, Muhammad Ali is stripped of his heavyweight boxing title. He is found guilty of a felony in refusing to be drafted for service in Vietnam, but he does not serve prison time, and on June 28, 1971, the U.S. Supreme Court reverses his conviction. His stand against the war had made him a hated figure in mainstream America, but in the black community and the rest of the world he had become an icon.

1947—Heyerdahl Embarks on Kon-Tiki
Norwegian ethnographer and adventurer Thor Heyerdahl and his five man crew set out from Peru on a giant balsa wood raft called the Kon-Tiki in order to prove that Peruvian natives could have settled Polynesia. After a 101 day, 4,300 mile (8,000 km) journey, Kon-Tiki smashes into the reef at Raroia in the Tuamotu Islands on August 7, 1947, thus demonstrating that it is possible for a primitive craft to survive a Pacific crossing.
1989—Soviets Acknowledge Chernobyl Accident
After two days of rumors and denials the Soviet Union admits there was an accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine. Reactor number four had suffered a meltdown, sending a plume of radioactive fallout into the atmosphere and over an extensive geographical area. Today the abandoned radioactive area surrounding Chernobyl is rife with local wildlife and has been converted into a wildlife sanctuary, one of the largest in Europe.
