Africa in the Movies

In the mood for a cinematic African safari?

Drums of the Congo (1942); a tiger in Africa?

Here are some movies and videos about Africa, set in Africa, filmed in Africa, or somehow related to Africa. Some you might want to see, and a few you might want to avoid. Some are dramas, some comedies, some are realistic, others present a distorted or romanticized view of Africa. Northern Africa is the setting of many of the older movies; Apartheid South Africa is the setting for many of the newer movies. Take the Africa and the Academy Awards quiz, or see The Congo Cookbook movies-about-Africa recommendations, below. Please note the African-made movies (i.e., movies made by African directors).

  - movies that were filmed at least partially in Africa are notated with the name(s) of the African country (countries) in which they were filmed
