The Terror and the Time

The terror is British colonialism in Guyana; the time is 1953, the year of the first elections under a provisional democratic constitution. Stylized scenes photographed throughout Georgetown accompany the poetry of Martin Carter to convey a sense of intense polical reform against poverty, repression and silence. The film unfolds against the international backdrop of the 50s: the growth of foreign economic and military interests in the Caribbean basin, the coronation of Queen Elizabeth, the Mau Mau revolts in Kenya, the Cold War, and the U.S.' covert wars against Cuba, Malaysia, Vietnam, Iran and Nigeria.

THE TERROR AND THE TIME is currently unavailable.
