This is a film made by Audrey Lewis during her time working as a missionary and, "under great difficulty at a time in Kenya in the 1950s when the country was going through a time of change and pressure with the active Mau Mau terrorist movement." The film was made on a shoestring budget between 1953 and 1958. Lewis drafted the commentary which was finalised and published by the Methodist Missionary Society, London. A well-known BBC commentator, Alvar Lidell, was engaged to read the commentary for the film. The background of African music was recorded by Lewis using a tape recorder run from the battery of a Land Rover. It was filmed at different times and under great difficulties in travelling during this period because of the Mau Mau terrorist movement sweeping through Northern Kenya. Some of the scenes from the coastal area were uniquely filmed in the 'Kaya', the place of African ancestral worship in the forest.
