A Self Portrait

In 1971, the small African nation of Uganda was taken over by self-styled dictator General Idi Amin, beginning an eight-year reign of terror that would result in the deaths of over 300,000 people.In this chilling yet darkly comic documentary, director Barbet Schroeder turns his cameras on the infamous tyrant, revealing the dynamic, charming, and appallingly dangerous man whose fanatical neuroses held an entire nation in their grip.Made with the full support and participation of the dictator- and featuring an accordion score by Amin himself- General Idi Amin Dada provides a candid and disturbing portrait of one of the 20th century's most notorious figures.
