This documentary looks at the life of Dr Walter Rodney, one of the region’s great intellectuals and activists whose reach extended far beyond his native Guyana. Author of How Europe Underdeveloped Africa, Rodney was a fearless champion of justice all over the world. His assassination in 1980 shocked the Caribbean and brought into focus the work he was doing. The story is told through archival footage and interviews with contemporaries and family members.

Guyana-born director Clairmont Chung lives in the US and is an attorney by profession but spends much of his time involved in media and writing projects. He says growing up in Guyana when there was no television inspired him to preserve stories through the medium of video.
