Africa Addio begins with a lament about the fading away of the western romantic notion of what Africa is, before vividly exploring the chaotic, polarizing and confusing realities prevalent whenever there is a transfer of power.
Made in the ’60s by Mondo masters, Jacopetti & Prosperi, Africa Addio is mostly a show of journalistic prowess, despite the claims of staging that have never been proved or admitted.
