Narrated by former US Attorney General Eric Holder, this passionate docudrama tells the story of Errol Barrow, the first prime minister of Barbados and former long-serving RAF pilot in WWII. Barrow was committed to social equality, education for all and wider Caribbean independence. He was also known for his long-standing relationship with Nina Simone and his appetite for life. Tony Warner of Black History Walks will introduce the screening and director Marcia Weekes hopes to join us – in person or via Skype – to discuss the film afterwards.

Tickets £6.50.
