Un compte-rendu éclairé de la rébellion Mau-Mau, un épisode parmi les plus controversés de l'histoire. Sur la jaquette : Le 1er mai 1955 en début d'après-midi, dans la gorge Ndyeia au Kenya central, Don McWilliams et des camarades soldats de l'armée britannique regardent mourir à leurs pieds un combattant mau-mau qu'ils ont abattu. Au-dessus du groupe se déploie l'immense ciel de la vallée du rift. McWilliams, qui a grandi sous les bombardements londoniens et sort à peine de l'adolescence, fait son service militaire au Kenya. En jeune héritier de la tradition impériale britannique, il est venu vivre la grande aventure africaine. Mais le regard du rebelle agonisant change sa vie. Cinquante ans plus tard, le cinéaste porte sur son passé un regard critique, ferme, sans compromission. Rigueur historique et lyrisme caractérisent ce journal filmé d'une singulière beauté qui marie des photos rapportées d'Afrique par McWilliams lui-même, une animation originale et des images d'archives. Il en résulte un compte-rendu éclairé de la rébellion Mau-Mau, un épisode parmi les plus controversés de l'histoire de l'Empire britannique déclinant
