In 2009, a group of Kenyan war veterans sued the British government to reveal the truth about what really happened in their country during the so-called 'Mau Mau Emergency’. This documentary tells the incredible story of those veterans demanding truth and reparations for British crimes, and exposes the depth of the establishment's attempted erasure of colonial histories of violence under Operation Legacy.
The film screening will be introduced by Dr Poppy Cullen (University of Exeter), historian and author of 'Kenya and Britain after Independence: Beyond Neo-Colonialism'.
Refreshments will also be provided.
