Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights is arguably the greatest romantic novel of the nineteenth century, with the handsome, sadistic Heathcliff at its centre. Yet who is Heathcliff? Where does his destructive anger come from? Might Emily Brontë be hinting at a far darker secret than has previously been suspected? This provocative documentary—featuring commentary by acclaimed writer Caryl Philips—examines the themes of slavery and race coded into Brontë’s book, and discovers some uncanny parallels in the slave-owning families of Yorkshire.

Trinidad + Tobago premiere.
