Beautiful tree, severed roots / written and produced by Kenny Mann.

Publication | Library Call Number: DVD-1114

The parents of filmmaker Kenny Mann were Polish and Romanian Jews and socialists who fled Europe to settle in Kenya as refugees in 1942. Born and raised there, Mann examines how their Jewish socialist values enabled them to fully adapt to and identify with Africa and Africans. While British settlers claimed land and exploited African people, her parents engaged with Africa and the African identity, devoting their lives to fighting hunger, disease, and poverty.
