TESTAMENT


 working title only  
 WORK-IN-PROGRESS feature documentary directed by Meena Nanji + Zippy  Kimundu 


From 1885-1963 the British ruled Kenya and inflicted a regime of violence that saw Kenyans kicked off their land and enslaved. As resistance grew in the 1950's, the British threw about a million Kenyans into concentration camps, starving, torturing and killing thousands.
In 1963, Kenya won its independence, but the majority of the population, including freedom fighters, did not see their land returned. They were left destitute - a situation that persists today.
Now, people want justice. Not just for past colonial atrocities. They want to reclaim their history. And their land.
One woman, Wanjugu Kimathi, is leading this fight.
Testament tells her story.
