The documentary Beyond the Gates of Splendor also examines the story of the five American missionaries who first attempted contact with the Waodani Indians. The experiences of another American missionary (who serves among the people of Tonga) are recounted in the movie The Other Side of Heaven. The differences between primitive societies and modern man are the basis for both humor and contemplation in the South African film, The Gods Must be Crazy.
