Overview

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 but has some substance to back it up. 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 several years later as Africa, Blood and Guts, a version running almost an hour shorter than the original and emphasizing gore over historical perspective; to make things really confusing, the 2008 DVD reissue contains the original 138-minut version but was slapped with the title of the re-edit.
