https://www.facebook.com/nannythemovie Queen Nanny: Legendary Maroon Chieftainess, is a one-hour documentary-film, that unearths and examines the mysterious figure that is Nanny of the Maroons - one of the most celebrated, but least recognized heroines in the resistance history of the New World. The film also sheds light on the incredible resistance movement of the Jamaican Maroons, led by the indomitable 18th century military genius, Nanny of the Maroons. A spiritual leader, skilled in the use of herbs and guerilla warfare tactics, from her mountain stronghold at the source of the Stony River in the majestic Blue Mountains, she directed the warfare that effectively neutralized the vaunted British firepower. Following on the heels of Akwantu: the Journey (2012), Anderson's award-winning film on the history of the Jamaican Maroons, Queen Nanny expands on the story of the New World's first successful freedom fighters by shedding light on to one of the leading figures in that struggle.
