Goodbye Uncle Tom
It was advertised as "The first motion picture based on historical facts about the rise and revolt of slavery in America." It became one of the most reviled and misunderstood films of its time.
Written, edited, produced and directed by Jacopetti & Prosperi
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 Chronicle hailed 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."
Three decades cannot diminish GOODBYE UNCLE TOM's impact or quiet its controversy.
This is the complete 123-minute English version of GOODBYE UNCLE TOM, fully restored from the original vault negatives
Presented totally uncut, uncensored, and virtually unseen since its abortive theatrical release more than 30 years ago.
