Shockingly Authentic. Amistad was a joke.
15 June 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Every American should see this movie to understand the horrors of slavery. It exposes the wicked nature of Europeans and the oppressive facets of Racism and Capitalism. This is what this country is built upon. Although some of although some of Jacopetti's works such as 'Adios Africa' are considered racist this film has a reverse effect. If we all were to watch this it would aid in exorcizing some demons that have lain dormant too long. It forces the viewer to look not only at the history of this world but the scary world we live in. Brilliant. NOT FOR THE WEAK AT HEART OR STOMACH!!
