General Idi Amin Dada

A film by Barbet Schroeder

The first in-depth film study of the former Uganda dictator. Despite the numerous disturbing facts reeled in this film, Idi Amin personally approve its release (perhaps believing that nothing could possibly threaten his self-proclaimed position of president for life). Although he has since been toppled from power, this unique and vivid self-portrait remains a valuable and fascinating record of the gregarious madman who made headlines in the 70s.
