Queimada (HUM455)

If you’re interested in anti-colonial cinema about the Caribbean you might watch Gillo Pontecorvo’s Queimada (Burn!) which draws from multiple historical sources, including the career of US filibusterer William Walker (who crowned himself king of Nicaragua) and British interference in the Antilles. It’s streaming on netflix.
