Google video has surprisingly uploaded one of the most beautiful, powerful, extremely RACIST movies ever made – the documentary Africa Addio.
You can see the entire uncut version (click here for direct link) – be prepared for lots of Black African savagery, cruelty to animals, but lots of inspiring, brave actions by small numbers of Whites keeping a stiff upper lip in the worst of times in Black Africa.
Here are excerpts from a great review by “The Duke”:
“Europe was about to retreat from Africa. The continent which stood as a British colony for centuries was, in part, being reluctantly handed back to the African people.
(Directors) Jacopetti and Prosperi grabbed the cameras, and spent three years documenting this period of violent dissent and cultural upheaval.
The filmmakers have since asserted that the intention was to attack the British and European colonists for leaving Africa at such a crucially unstable moment in its history. The film, though, taken purely on its own terms, regardless of the intentions, serves as perhaps the most offensively pro-colonialist document ever produced…
I would not for a second attempt to convince anyone of the moral worth of the film, simply because, barring the admirable stance on game-hunting, it is at best woefully misguided, and at worst, gleefully and abhorrently delighting in its racism.
I stand by my assertion that Africa Addio is a masterpiece, and among the greatest films ever made, but I also stand by my assertion that it is morally disgusting, despicably racist and consistently reprehensible.”
