Curzon welcomes director Stevan Riley for a Q&A after the screening of his new film FIRE IN BABYLON, a remarkable account of how the West Indies triumphed over England to become one of the most successful sporting teams in history in a turbulent era of apartheid in South Africa; race riots in England and civil unrest in the Caribbean.
Fire in Babylon [Cert TBC]
Director: Stevan Riley
Starring: Viv Richards, Clive Lloyd, Colin Croft
A remarkable account of how the West Indies triumphed over England to become one of the most successful sporting teams in history. Riley’s arresting film documents the transformation of a relatively unknown group of players into the firebrands of the cricket world. Narrated by members of the legendary team, it contextualises their achievements within the times and highlights the players’ role in confronting racism and undermining stereotypes. A heartfelt and important documentary.
