“The Past Is Not Our Future” – forthcoming film on Walter Rodney

The Past Is Not Our Future: Walter Rodney’s Student Years a new film directed by Matthew Smith, out in February 2018. Described here:

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 1960s. It’s as much a tribute to the Caribbean during the sweeping transformations of the 60s as it is to Rodney’s enduring voice.
