Film review: Fire in Babylon

“Richards is…a convincing vehicle for the thread of the story that the film takes as its unifying concept: cricket as a vehicle for black West Indian liberation and self-determination. It’s one of the overriding themes of West Indies cricket, but Riley gives it a Rastafarian spin: cricketing supremacy as a fight against ‘Babylon,’ the Rastafarian term for systems that oppress and discriminate against the dispossessed.”

— From Georgia Popplewell’s review of Fire in Babylon, a ttff/11 selection, in the new issue of the Caribbean Review of Books. The CRB, a ttff/11 media partner, will run a review of a film showing at this year’s Festival every week throughout September & October.
