[edit] Information

A three-year documentary odyssey through the bloody social upheaval of 1960s Africa, this film from the directors of Mondo Cane is just as unflinching as its predecessor in its visual catalogue of atrocities. Topics include the violent civil war in the Congo, the final days of colonial rule in Kenya, revolutions in Zanzibar and Angola, racial strife in Dar es Salaam, the Bahuti slaughter of the Rwandan Watusi, and the mass extermination of thousands of animals in game enclaves. The considerable political content was greatly reduced when exploitation maven Jerry Gross released the film in America in 1970 as Africa, Blood and Guts, a version running 37 minutes shorter than the original and emphasizing gore over historical perspective. ~ Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide

A long dramatized documentary about Africa around 1960-1970. Tragic and explosive years in which bloody independence wars were fought, and a whole continent was on fire from political turmoil and tribal conflicts. An interesting historical study.

Depicting the turmoil following the fall of colonialism. A cause of outrage, decide yourself whether it's the work of devious and dangerous film-makers or a brave experiment in documentary.

This film depicting the turmoil following the fall of colonialism is one of the leading examples of 'mondo' cinema, a genre that boasts JG Ballard as one of its enthusiasts. The film caused such outrage that the directors went on to make Goodbye Uncle Tom to justify their intentions. Decide yourself whether it's the work of devious and dangerous film-makers or a brave experiment in documentary. A panel discussion with Colin Prescod of the Institute of Race Relations and Mark Goodall, 'mondo' historian, will follow this screening. ~ British Film Institute
