Latuko (1952)

In 1950, Edgar Monsanto Queeny returned from equatorial Sudan with 80,000 feet of exposed footage. From this mass of images, Queeny, the chairman of the Monsanto Chemical company, fashioned a fifty-minute color film about the "savage" Latuko tribe.

from IMDb:

This film was mentioned by a 1954 Memorandum of the New York State Education Department, written with regard to New York State Law 1954, Chapter 620, which added definitions of "immoral" and "incite to crime" for motion picture censorship purposes. The Memorandum cited this film as an example of a film about which the ED's Motion Picture Division had been "beset with inquiries and applications for reconsideration of motion pictures which heretofore have been regarded as contrary to the present provisions of the statute." It stated that Latuko was "a full length movie in which practically no person has on any clothes whatsoever."
