DIFFICULT TO TRAIN

[Work in Progress, 2020]

This series grew out a documentary film I am currently making in Kenya. A recent discovery of colonial era policy documents at the British Foreign Office reveal little known systematic atrocities and violence perpetrated by the British regime. This project, seeks to highlight some of these texts - with reference to the Kenyan Independence Movement (known as the Mau Mau), State administered violence against Kenyans, British propaganda and how they tried to justify their theft of Kenyan land. The series posits that although the colonial legacy has become part of the landscape in Kenya, it does not hold minds in bondage.Dimensions: 24”x36” C-Print collage
