Men of Two Worlds

Handsomely presented drama about a man caught between his privileged Western education and traditional African roots.

Drama 1946 107 mins


British Guyanese actor Robert Adams plays Kisenga, a Western-educated African man returning to his home village, in this fascinating drama about changing colonial Africa. Caught between the traditions of the villagers and the cultural dominance of the colonial rulers, Kisenga is forced to decide on the right way forward for his country. Shot in glorious Technicolor, this is a pertinent political drama from well-regarded director Thorold Dickinson which tackles the difficult legacy of colonialism as the sun set on the British Empire.
