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

The second person is Richard Gordon Turnbull, the last colonial governor of Tanzania. The third person is Moise Tshombe, a Congolese politician who returned to Congo to "stop the rebellion" and later died 3 years after Africa Addio was made. See more »
This is a documentary showing what REALLY occurred in Africa upon "liberation". This is not the Disneyland version brought to you by the controlled media in the US. Unfortunately, the complete and uncensored version of this important film has long been unavailable. Now it seems that even the shortened version is unavailable.
