Award-winning filmmaker Mira Nair, who is known for helming such global hits as Salaam Bombay, Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love, and Monsoon Wedding, has onboarded directors Meena Nanji and Zippy Kimundu’s Our Land, Our Freedom, ahead of the film’s world premiere at IDFA.

IDFA takes place in Amsterdam from November 8 – 19 and the documentary feature will screen as part of the festival’s Frontlight strand.

“Ancestral voices are powerful indeed. We live in a world where colonization has robbed us of our land, but not our voices,” said Nair. “Our Land, Our Freedom is an epic and intimate film about the quest to consecrate the Mau Mau rebellion against British rule in Kenya. About time, I say. I am honoured to be the executive producer of the film, directed beautifully by Meena Nanji and Zippy Kimundu.”
