Movie Info

Activist Femi Nylander unearths the shocking reality of Joseph Conrad’s seminal work, ‘Heart of Darkness.’ African Apocalypse follows the trail of a 19th century French colonial military commander who burned his way across Africa, massacring tens of thousands in the name of imperial domination. Communities still devastated by a century old atrocity speak out for the first time, while Nylander begins to question his own sense of belonging.

Critic Reviews for African Apocalypse

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (1)

  • [Nylander] is doing invaluable work here, disinterring another collectively obscured tragedy and presenting it back to Europe as part of a long-overdue revision of colonialism.

  • Though the film generally provides an reflective and insightful look at the horrors of Paul Voulet and colonialism, it falls into a trap, as many documentaries on this topic do.

    October 26, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • African Apocalypse is gripping detective work, factually revelatory and emotionally memorable.

    November 7, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a fascinating travelog tracing a line from the present into the past. And it adds firsthand accounts to events mainly known only through fiction.

    November 6, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Although mostly straightforward in visual presentation, Lemkin isn't above the odd flourish, which adds to the themes and connections the film looks to address.

    October 30, 2020 | Full Review…
  • In an intimate yet shattering documentary, Black British activist Femi Nylander searches for 'the imperial history they didn't teach at school,' and finds it. Heartbreaking, provocative, illuminating.

    October 30, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
