Film: Forward Ever: The Killing of a Revolution, followed by Q&A

11/10/2014 @ 18:30 - 21:30

$9

In October 1983, Ronald Reagan sent 8,000 members of the US Armed Forces to invade Grenada, an island with a population of just over 100,000 people, in an operation he named ‘American Fury’; an operation he had been planning ever since the Grenadan revolution of 1979 had displaced the US-anointed tyrannical Prime Minister, Eric Gairy. The US invasion of Grenada, criticised as a ‘flagrant violation of international law’ by the UN and international community, put an end to a unique experiment in Caribbean politics.

This comprehensive, gripping and revealing documentary tells the story of the Grenada revolution as never before. The film features extensive, previously unseen file footage, as well as old and new interviews with many of the key players of the time.

150mins, Bruce Paddington, 2013
