Where to watch

Movie Info

Africa, Blood and Guts is an edited-down version of the 1966 documentary Africa, Addio, a follow up to the directors' Mondo Cane. Whereas the original 138-minute version of Addio sought to criticize practices and customs in 1960s Africa and demonstrated a fair amount of substance (drawing extreme controversy for its political and social observations about Africa), this reduced version exists only for the sake of exploitation - exclusively emphasizing homicides, genocides, mutilations, the butchering of animals and all manner of other grotesquerie.

Audience Reviews for Africa Addio (Adios Africa) (Africa Blood and Guts)

  • Feb 26, 2014
    The makers of MONDO CANE spend three years in Africa documenting the transition from colonialism to self rule, capturing massacres of both wildlife and humans. This is a difficult movie to watch, and to evaluate. On the one hand, there are the allegations that some scenes are staged, other scenes (such as the drawn-out killing of an elephant with spears) are needlessly exploitative and tasteless, and the entire tenor of the film seems skewed towards contrasting European civilization with the savagery of the native African. On the other hand, the directors unearthed an amazing amount of historically important footage of massacres and crimes against humanity that were going on in Kenya, Rawanda and other places in post-colonial Africa, which progressive Europeans of the time did not want to admit or see. A troubling film all around.

    Here's a pattern to almost all Mondo films. First they'd show you something very beautiful and majestic, while you're enjoying the scene suddenly they'd cut it and show you images that would gross you out for 3 years. Take the hippo scene for instance, at first they're bathing, looking happy and shit, 20 sec later that fucking hippo is being killed with spears and people are fucking harvesting the meat. In the end, it was a great shockumentary I think, shows you how cruel human being can be.
