    It's about the Mau Mau rebellion despite the rather confusing name.


    Point taken, Captain. Poetic license. Should have known by now.

    Another occasion incidentally where West Indian actors (Earl Cameron) were expected to be indigenous Africans...

    It's about the Mau Mau rebellion despite the rather confusing name.

    East Africa but it was the Royal Film for 1951 so any Mau Mau that might have appeared were still undercover at that time.

    Was going to say, he looks definitely Masai to me. If you can get a copy, you can read the definitive history of the uprising in:
    The Origin and Growth of Mau Mau, An Historical Survey. Published by the UK Government for Colony and Protectorate of Kenya. Author: P.M.Renison, April 1960.
    Came over all Captain there for a moment.

    The more than Kshs 25 million feature film is the debut production of Wide Angle Visions, a local film production company and will feature Kenyan actors Tony Njuguna and Mehul Savani alongside Bollywood film star of American descent Tom Alter.

    Titled Muigwithania, the film is set on the original Mau Mau strategic locations in Kabete on the outskirts of Nairobi.

    Speaking when he confirmed the commencement of the movie shoot, Writer and Director Amit Tyagi said the film is being shot on high definition video format and is geared at telling the positive story of the Mau Mau struggle.

    The Kitchen Toto (1987) with Bob Peck and Phyllis Logan is a another more recent feature concerning the Mau Mau.

    Looks ominous as far as the truth is concerned then. I don't suppose there'll be much footage of good old Jomo Kenyatta lounging around his beach house in the Seychelles at the British tax-payer's expense, while his misguided acolytes ran around back home emasculating their brothers who wouldn't join them.

    A bit earlier, but there are several films about Sandokan - The Tiger of Malaya and his struggles against British and Dutch imperialists!

    The best one is the first, Sandokan The Great, which stars Steve Reeves.
