Film: A United Kingdom

Sit back, relax, and enjoy a film on the big screen!

The true story of King Seretse Khama of Botswana and how his controversial marriage to a British white woman, Ruth Williams, put his kingdom into political and diplomatic turmoil in the late 1940s. They face a citizenry leery of a white Briton as their Queen and the British holding their land as a protectorate, and fearful of South Africa’s racist backlash to this affront to their apartheid domination.
