Goodbye Uncle Tom is an epic recreation of American slave trade atrocities. This 1971 Italian film is based on true events from the American Antebellum period. The filmmakers of this docudrama go back in time, using a helicopter, to conduct interviews and depict scenes during slavery, based upon published documents, public records, rules and regulations regarding the handling of slaves.
WARNING – Viewer discretion is advised, very graphic movie about slavery: The film which was banned in the United States in 1971 because some claim that it is too accurate to the true horrors of the American South during slavery. Depicts nudity, cruel exploitation, violence and the extremely dehumanizing reality of slavery which is not usually shown by U.S. directors and producers. The truth is not sugar coated and the realities of slavery can be very difficult to watch!
