The Haze Of Our Lives™ "X"

Newsman Chet Huntley narrates this documentary showing the rise of the African resistance movement known as the "Mau-Mau" against British rule in East Africa in the early 1950s.

"Documentary about the Mau Mau uprising in Kenya during the early part of the 1950's. The film tells the story of what brought about the uprising and what was actually going on during it. The film deals with the coming of the white settlers, the confusion of the buying of land and how resentment grew to the point where some of the Africans felt that violence was the only way to go. The film focuses on the trials that resulted from the attacks and the government efforts to take back control and bring order.

Marketed as an exploitation film in its day and afterward, with a promise of way more than was shown this is pretty much a straight out report of what was was going on in Kenya. There is little sensational in the film other than some slaughtered animals and the dead bodies of the Mau Mau victims. The film is very much the forerunner of the Mondo Movies that would explode roughly a decade later as the smart mouth narration. (Actually the film kind of resembles a precursor to the film Africa Addio which was made by two of the directors of the Mondo Cane films.)" -
