Queen Nanny: Legendary Maroon Chieftainess

Queen Nanny documents the incredible resistance movement of the Jamaican Maroons, led by the legendary, indomitable 18th century Jamaican Maroon Chieftainess. From her role as spiritual leader, skilled in the use of herbs and guerilla warfare tactics, to her formidable mountain stronghold against the English at Stony River, this unprecedented film delves into the mystery of one of the most celebrated, but least recognised heroines in the resistance history of the New World.
