OUR LAND, OUR FREEDOM (with Q&A)
Meena Nanji & Zippy Kimundu | Kenya/United States/Portugal/Germany | 2024 | 100 min
A passionate woman embarks on a seemingly impossible quest for the reclamation of ancestral land. What starts off as a search for her father’s remains soon turns into a tense national issue surrounding British colonialism, freedom fighters and an unjust reality. Pitfalls ensue, and it is hard for those involved not to feel as if their very lives are at stake. It is pure grit, determination and a genuine love for her people that keep her going despite it all, and pushes her to provide for those that did so much for her country yet received so little reward for such a sacrifice.
