Queen's Global Summer presents The Guerrilla History Film Forum: Struggles for Equality

The struggle for equality and freedom has taken many forms globally. One crucial component of this history has been resistance to colonial violence and the legacies of racism. The films in the series engage these histories, make vivid the experiences of colonialism and the complexities of liberation struggle.  These films invite a conversation about the present path toward a future of global equality. The series will culminate with a forum for discussion of the movies with both film studies and history scholars and will air on YouTube and the Guerrilla History podcast: Learn from the films and join the discussion!

Film #2: Burn! (1969)

Director: Gillo Pontecorvo

Description: During a slave revolt in 1844, a British mercenary helps an Antilles island colony gain its independence from Portugal, but years later he returns to manhunt a local rebel army leader and former friend. (from IMDB).
