’70: Remembering A Revolution

’70: Remembering A Revolution

A revealing, riveting chronicle of the Black Power uprising that took place in Trinidad and Tobago in 1970. Featuring interviews with various activists, politicians, military officers and others who were caught up in the events, the film evokes those heady months when “Power to the people!” was the popular cry. Generous use of archive material and calypsos from the period rounds out this document of one of the most important—and most misunderstood—periods in the country’s modern history.
