"Mondo Cane" ("A Dog's World", also a mild Italian curse) is a 1962 Italian documentary film by Italian filmmakers Paolo Cavara, Gualtiero Jacopetti and Franco Prosperi. The film consists of a series of travelogue-vignettes providing glimpses into cultural practices throughout the world intended to shock or surprise the mostly Western film audience, including an insect banquet and a memorable look at a practising South Pacific cargo cult. "Mondo Cane"'s shock-exploitation-documentary style was the inspiration for numerous imitations, including "Shocking Asia" and the "Faces of Death" series of movies.

It was nominated for the Palme d'Or, the highest prize given to a competing film at the Cannes Film Festival. The movie's theme song, "More", was written by Riz Ortolani and Nino Oliviero and was translated into the English language by Norman Newell. In 1964, the song was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Song. The film's video packaging states it won an Oscar, although it was only nominated.

The film started a fad known as "Mondo film."
