THE OATH
Presented by Pamela and Nathan Collett

This film is made in Kenya by Kenyans to tell a story about the Mau Mau Rebellion Freedom Fighters or Terrorists? In the 1950’s in Kenya, supporters saw the Mau Mau as leaders in the struggle for land and freedom. The British colonialists and their loyal supporters labelled the Mau Mau as “terrorists.” The controversy continues to this day. The Oath tells the story of two brothers, Mwangi and Joseph, one who supported and one who opposed the Mau Mau. It’s is a no-budget film that was a labor of love made by Kenyan volunteers from low-income areas surrounding Nairobi, Kenya. It has been shown at film festivals in Burkina Faso, West Africa, and at the Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles. The vision of Hot Sun Films is to develop storytelling through filmmaking in East Africa from voices not heard. See this unique film and discuss the issues of land, freedom and decolonisation with Pamela and Nathan. Our film series is about YOU and YOUR participation. We welcome your input. Bring your friends!

Before and after the film, everyone’s invited to indulge in our Humanist Coffee House.
