'70: Remembering a Revolution [Keeling's Caribbean Showcase]
'70: Remembering a Revolution
Alex de Verteuil and Elizabeth Topp, 2010, 85 min.
How did a handful of students change the course of history in Trinidad and Tobago? Between February and April 1970, the streets of Port of Spain were filled with angry young black men and women chanting 'Power to the People'. This was the legendary Black Power revolution, which captivated the imaginations of their youthful followers and made the government of Dr. Eric Williams and the white establishment very nervous. The revolution was ended by a State of Emergency, but this in turn was threatened by a surprise mutiny among the soldiers of the Regiment. Had it succeeded (a distinct possibility) a military coup might well have ushered in a socialist revolutionary government to Trinidad and Tobago. This story is told through archival footage and photographs, members of the white business community, journalists and the revolutionaries themselves.

Part of the monthly Maysles Cinema series 'Keeling's Caribbean Showcase', curated by Keeling Beckford of Keeling's Reggae Music and Videos.
