BFI: AFRICAN ODYSSEY’S screens The Past is Not Our Future: Walter Rodney’s Student Years

A discussion chaired by Professor Patricia Daley with panellists including director Matthew Smith and Professor David Dabydeen

Rare photos, re-enactments, personal writing and archive film are complied in this documentary exploring the early life of Walter Rodney, a renowned Guyanese revolutionary, from his university years to his emergence as a political radical in the 1960’s. It’s as much a tribute to the Caribbean during the sweeping transformations of the 60’s as it is to Rodney’s enduring voice. Date: Saturday 10 March 2018 13:00
