The film was shot over a period of three years by Gualtiero Jacopetti and Franco Prosperi, two Italian filmmakers who had gained fame (along with co-director Paolo Cavara) as the directors of Mondo Cane in 1962.

He was acquitted after he and co-director Franco Prosperi produced documents proving they had arrived at the scene just before the execution took place.
An English-language version currently released by Blue Underground runs 128 minutes.
The film was released as Africa Blood and Guts in the USA in 1970, at only 83 minutes (over 45 minutes removed in order to focus exclusively on scenes of carnage); according to the text of the box for the Blue Underground release, directors Jacopetti and Prosperi both disowned this version. The documentary was written, directed, and edited jointly by Gualtiero Jacopetti and Franco Prosperi and was narrated by Sergio Rossi (not to be confused with the fashion designer of the same name). Film critic Roger Ebert, in a scathing 1967 review of the (unauthorized) American version of the film, calls it "racist" and claims that it "slanders a continent".
