IMPORTANT BACKGROUND NOTE: This movie was primarily filmed in Haiti during the dictatorship of Papa Doc. Papa Doc gave his blessings to the film makers and offered them anything they wanted, including the impoverished locals working for pennies. The people who played the slaves were real life impoverished Haitians. This film was made in almost slavery like conditions.
LET THIS BE A LESSON AS TO WHY FILMS LIKE THIS ARE NOT OK TO MAKE OR PRODUCE!
PLOT: Two documentary filmmakers go back in time to the pre-Civil War American South, to film the slave trade.

Some video stoppage, but mostly smooth running.
This is my first time to watch this movie on a different site than I usually do. The other site DIDN’T have any video stoppages. I have watched it several times on the other site, but I feel that my comment may be viewed by a less hostile group.
First, let me say that I totally disapprove of slavery. I also see that some of the things that we are told about the obtaining of these people in their African homeland is false. But, while this movie is meant to inflame hate, I look at it for a totally different reason.
The producers of this movie, really weren't just trying to make a political statement.....they were using the front of informing us about slave conditions as a vehicle to show nudity that is totally illegal in most places. The truth is, that is why I give it such a high rating!!!! The nudity shown is absolutely wonderful! The young women are beautiful, and the naked men have beautiful bodies. I was very glad to see naked children, which normally would be illegal to film.
I don't watch the parts that depict modern America. Those are totally vile! This movie was very disjointed. There were parts that had sights and sounds that were TOTALLY out of place in the era that the movie depicts. There was much violence in it, but like I said, it was the nudity that got my attention. There were also some scenes of very pretty young white women in their finery.
So while some of the things depicted were totally absurd, and the movie was rather disjointed, and giving a false sense of all that took place in that sad time. It is one of my favorites.

-----------------------BUT BEAR IN MIND------------------------------
If you hate all the things in this movie why the fuck did you upload it???????????
You'll say cuz people need to ever and always bear in mind just how horrible slavery was.....just how bad cruelty to animals is....just how bad it is to exploit children and poor people.....
That's all a bunch of bullshit. People ( that is WHITE people) have had this pumped into our heads for generations. I'm 60 years old, from the Deepest part of the Deep South, Southwest Georgia, Albany, Georgia. When I was born in 1961 my family lived in a 100% segregated housing project ( blacks had their own projects which were also 100% segregated, whites weren't allowed to live there. In 1970 or 1971 after Jimmy Carter became Governor of Georgia he desegregated the projects.
1970 was 52 years ago......A VERY, VERY LONG TIME AGO......There hasn't been any laws promoting segregation in this country for more than 50 years. Blacks I grew up with in the projects weren't treated any worse or differently than me.
They've been given unconstitutional rights which supercede mine.
Slavery was abolished 156 years ago( In the Western World, but slavery certainly continues in some black African countries to this very day)
All my life, at least for the past 50 years I've had the propaganda pumped into me of how I owe blacks something....how I should....HOW I MUST atone for the " sins" of my ancestors.
One of my ancestors, owned 60 slaves at the start of the Civil War..........I've never owned 1 single slave.......Why the fuck should I atone for something that my great-grandfather did 100 years before I was even born????? Pure, absolute bullshit!!!!
The fact is that you uploaded this movie for the purpose of propaganda and salaciousness. No other reason.
You know that people are drawn to the salacious......people are very perverse. You are a perverse propagandist....no more, no less. You did mention that this film was made during the dictatorship of Papa Doc. That's to your credit. Still you wanna indict, subliminally or otherwise, white people for things no white person living in the world today has done. That's very, very sneaky and disingenuous
