My parents were Polish and Romanian secular Jews and Socialists who fled Europe to settle in Kenya in 1942. Born and raised there, I examine how their Jewish Socialist values enabled them to fully adapt to and profoundly identify with Africa and Africans. While British settlers claimed land and exploited African people, my parents devoted their lives to fighting hunger, disease and poverty and were politically influential. Set against the backdrop of their lives between the Mau Mau uprising of the 1950s and Independence in 1963, I examine my own identity as a “British” girl in an Eastern European family, as a white in an African country and as an anti-colonialist in a colony, presenting a fascinating examination of Jewish identity and an exposition of Kenya’s colonial history from a unique point of view. Shot in Kenya, Poland and Romania, the unconventional format of six chapters utilizes live and archival footage, a variety of visual elements, my parents’ voices culled from 30 years of cassette tape correspondence, music, and my own narration.
