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.
