Carib Week: W.A.R. Stories 3/29

Tuesday, March 29, 2011:   Film screening: W.A.R. Stories

A documentary on the life and ideology of Guyanese historian and political activist Walter Rodney. The film’s narrative on Walter Rodney is told by over 15 narrators, all people who knew him well or who were tremendously influenced by him. The narrators include some of his Working Peoples’ Alliance (WPA) fellows in arms, and some of his UWI classmates. The narratives and narrators crisscross, go back and forth across continents, build on each other, and they are filled with humor, horror, sentimentality, and awe.

Q&A with Director Clairmont Chung, Shanklin 107  p.m.
