The TT produced film Forward Ever: The Killing of a Revolution by Bruce
Paddington, has been selected for screening at the Pan African Film
Festival (PAFF), in Los Angeles, as part of its 25th anniversary
celebrations.
Considered the largest and most prestigious black film festival in America,
the Pan African Film Festival was selected by USA Today as 3rd in their
2015 list of 10 Best Film Festivals in the U.S.
Forward Ever will screen as part of a special section PAFF at 25
Spotlight, on Sunday
12 February, 8.50pm, at the Cinemark's Baldwin Hills 15 Cinema, Los
Angeles.
The feature length documentary, produced and directed by Paddington, former
UWI lecturer and founder and festival director of the trinidad+tobago film
festival, was co-produced by Princess Donelan (producer Grenada), co-directed
and edited by Luke Paddington, with cinematography by Oliver Milne. It
premiered at the trinidad+tobago film festival in 2013 where it was
screened to sold out audiences.
About Forward Ever: The Killing of a Revolution
In 1983, Grenadian Prime Minister Maurice Bishop and a number of his
colleagues were assassinated. Their bodies were never found. The resulting
invasion of Grenada by US forces in 1983 echoed around the world and ended
a unique experiment in Caribbean politics. A comprehensive and gripping
story of the overthrow of the Grenada revolution is told as never before
through the extensive use of previously unseen file footage, as well as old
and new interviews with many of the key players.
The film has screened to sold out audiences in London, New York and across
the Caribbean. It was made possible through support from the University of
the West Indies, St Augustine; FLOW; the Fundashon Bon Intenshon, Curacao
and the Trinidad and Tobago Film Company (FilmTT).
About the Pan African Film Festival
PAFF seeks to present and showcase a broad spectrum of Black creative
works, particularly those that reinforce positive images and help destroy
negative stereotypes. The Festival believes that film and art can lead to
better understanding and foster communication between peoples of diverse
cultures, races, and lifestyles, while at the same time serve as a vehicle
to initiate dialogue on the important issues of our times.
