RETURN
Charting the glorious supremacy of the West Indies cricket team throughout the late ‘70s and ‘80s, 'Fire In Babylon' proves the bat and ball were more effective than gunfire in the battle against racial injustice and the struggle for black rights. A display of dominance at the highest level – longer than any team in the history of sport - in a game previously reserved for the privileged elite, their symbolic declaration was clear: people of colour will not be dictated to – on a cricket ground or in any other field of life. Recounting the defiant and symbolic dominance of the West Indies cricket team throughout the late 1970s and 80s, 'Fire In Babylon' charts the events, which led to the rise of the West Indian cricketers becoming a fearsome and all conquering force to be reckoned with, striking a wonderfully defiant blow at the forces of white prejudice world-wide, inspiring a generation still struggling to emerge from racial discrimination. From the Oscar-winning producers of ‘One Day in September’ and ‘The Last King of Scotland’.
