'W.A.R. Stories' plus Q&A with director Clairmont Chung
One night screening of W.A.R. stories, a film documenting the life of activist and Guyanese intellectual Dr Walter Rodney followed by post screening Q&A with Director Clairmont Chung. Part of Keeling's Caribbean Showcase series at the Maysles Cinema.

W.A.R. Stories
Clairmont Chung, 2010, 88min.
This documentary looks at the life of Dr Walter Rodney, one of the region's great intellectuals and activists whose reach extended far beyond his native Guyana. Author of How Europe Underdeveloped Africa, Rodney was a fearless champion of justice all over the world. His assassination in 1980 shocked the Caribbean and brought into focus the work he was doing. The story is told through archival footage and interviews with contemporaries and family members. It's a story of a man who dedicated his life, and ultimately, gave his life in the struggle for equal rights and justice. He did so through his considerable intellectual gifts and actual grassroots involvement everywhere he went. The people who knew him weave a tale of how they related to him and him them. In the process we see the growth of their friend, brother, father, husband, his ideology and how that changed over the years from his coming of age in racially divided Guyana through the cold war, the Black Power Movement, Pan-Africanism, Caribbean independence, and the idea of self emancipation.


Part of Keeling's Caribbean Showcase: Every first Sunday of the month, Keeling Beckford of Keeling's Reggae Music and Video shares his vast library of films, concerts and vintage dancehall parties.
