Mondo film at the BFI

CCM member Mark Goodall writes about shock documentary films.

The BFI have recently screened a classic example of this- Jacopetti and Prosperi’s 1972 film Addio Zio Tom (Goodbye Uncle Tom). There is a video of the event here:

The BFI are screening another Jacopetti and Prosperi film Africa Addio (1966) on 25th April 2009:

    “Sweet and Savage” is an excellent study about the “shockumentary” or “mondo film”. Congratulations to Mark Goodall and to Headpress.
