Description

The first motion picture, based on historical facts, about the rise and revolt of slavery in America.

EVERY SCENE LOOKS YOU STRAIGHT IN THE EYE... AND SPITS!

The film considered too shocking for the world! Written, edited, produced and directed byGualtiero Jacopetti and Franco Prosperi of MONDO CANE fame, this epic recreation of the American slave trade atrocities was both condemned as depraved exploitation and acclaimed as an unprecedented cry of Black anguish and rage. The Detroit Chroniclehailed it as 'a graphic, moving, nerve-paralyzing film.' Legendary film critic Pauline Kael called it 'the most specific and rabid incitement of the race war.' It became one of the most reviled and misunderstood films of its time. Five decades cannot diminish GOODBYE UNCLE TOM's impact or quiet its controversy as it has become even more relevant TODAY!

In 1971, distributors forced the filmmakers to completely re-cut the film and radically re-write its extreme narration, removing more than 13 minute of race-war politics and inserting alternate scenes - creating what would become an entirely different film - before it could be released. Now more than 50 years later, both versions of GOODBYE UNCLE TOM can finally be seen in brand-new restorations, scanned in4K 16-bit from their original negatives, with Dolby Vision HDR & newly restored DTS-HD Master Audio, and packed with over 5 hours of Extras!
