Mau-Mau 1955

Narrated by newsman Chet Huntley, this documentary attempts to explain the causes of the 1950s Kenyan uprising against British rule, known as the “Mau Mau Rebellion.” The film starts out well, but its objectivity is compromised by several obviously staged “attacks” that are merely excuses to show “terrified” local women having their clothes ripped off.
