Pop Mau Mau (303)

In popular culture, the Kenya Land and Freedom Army (Mau Mau) was transformed into a caricature. This documentary, which is fairly liberal in its political orientation, was considered too shocking to screen and was subsequently marketed as an exploitation film. Numerous racist tropes are in play in these lurid posters.
