Revisiting The Mau Mau Rebellion…

19 May 2010 12:21 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

This is what happens when one lives on the web; you find all kinds of things. This autobiographical documentary, called A Time There Was: Stories from the Last Days of Kenya Colony, revisits the Mau Mau Rebellion of the 1950s, which the director participated in as a young British soldier stationed in Kenya. If you know nothing about the Mau Mau uprising, Click Here. The 1957 film, Something Of Value which starred Rock Hudson & Sidney Poitier, centered on it. But, I don’t believe there’s been a definitive film about the revolt (shouldn’t there be one?). The features I found are all seen through British eyes, and this one below isn’t all that different, but it’s maybe the most thoughtful and reflective.

Directed by Donald McWilliams, 2009, 87 min:
