Africa Blood and Guts Photos

Movie Info

This shocking documentary chronicles the violence that occurred in much of the African continent during the 1960s. As many of the countries in Africa were transitioning from colonial rule to other forms of government, there were often violent political upheavals. The film shows clips of revolutions in Zanzibar and Kenya in which thousands were killed. The violence is not only political; there is also extensive footage of hunters and poachers slaughtering different types of wild animals.

Audience Reviews for 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.
