A look at the careers of Gualtiero Jacopetti and Franco Prosperi who invented the mondo genre with MONDO CANE in 1962. It follows their career until their split in following the making of GOODBYE UNCLE TOM in 1971.
From the producers of 'Mondo Cane' comes this violent document of a continent in transition; the change from white colonialism to independent black statehood. Often times, this resulted in the wholesale massacre of thousands of people and the indiscriminate extermination of wild life. Captured on film are mercenary killer squads wiping out entire villages, executions, Mau-Mau massacres and more!Written by

In one scene where director Gualteiro Jacopetti and his crew encounter a soldier at Dar es Salaam, Jacopetti (in the dark blue shirt) is seen for a few seconds after he and his crew were dragged out of the car. Notice that Jacopetti suffered a cut after the soldier smashes the car window. See more »
The American version, with the explicitly shocking title Africa: Blood and Guts, was edited down to 122 minutes and translated without the approval of Jacopetti. The differences are such that Jacopetti has called this film a betrayal of the original idea. When the movie was released in the US in 1970, it was further shortened to 83 minutes. See more »
This is a very well done documentary. But what it shows will mortify you. I was yelling at the screen.
The atrocities against the animals in this documentary absolutely made me sick. Animals are slaughtered relentlessly, cruelly and for no reason other than the sport of it. I wanted those wild animals to rip their killers to shreds. At least once it would have been nice to see one of the poachers ripped to shreds by the elephants, lions and hippos.
It never ceases to sicken me how a man with a gun thinks he has really accomplished something by shooting an animal. Watching the men stand proudly with their gun over the carcass of an animal for a photo just makes me sick. They should all have been fed to the lions.
This documentary proves one thing and one thing only. Humans are the sickest and cruelest animals on the planet.
