  1. Frank's rating of the film The Empire in Africa

    A devastating document - colonial imperialism is alive and well behind the cloak of the UN and the "democracies" leading the world - to what end?

  2. Filmgalning's rating of the film The Empire in Africa

    The images will haunt me for a long time.

  3. Øyvind Rype's rating of the film The Empire in Africa

    Saw it in cinema when it premiered and it is easily one of the most horrific cinema experiences I've ever had. The ever-increasing violence seen in the archival footage took away all the arguments and all I kept thinking: "what will we see next?!". Arguably, one might say that "we" need to see what happened down there but personally the violence overshadowed the premise of the film. Left halfway through in disgust. *

  4. Peter Tran's rating of the film The Empire in Africa

    The documentary details how colonial power has destroyed Sierra Leone, by imposing a regime that directs natural resources to foreign corporations. With the recent overthrow of Gagbo in the Ivory Coast by Outara, supported by both France and the UN, the film has a lot of relevance now. Also, it shows how sanctions never works, as it only ever affects the poorest in a country. See Iraq in the 90's. Highly recommended

  5. peder's rating of the film The Empire in Africa

    This, along side with films like Darwin's Nightmare, make me frustrated and numb: is it even possible to actually do something about this? As said in the movie, independence isn't enough to eradicate colonialism.

  6. Sebastian Brameshuber's rating of the film The Empire in Africa

    incredibly shocking imagery... leaves me speechless and angry. wondering about the nature of current "peace keeping missions" of the so called international community
