Watch Fire in Babylon - Alternative Versions.
It was a privilege to attend the World Premiere of this new documentary
at the 2010 London Film Festival. Director Stevan Riley has made an
exhilarating piece that describes the events which led to the West
Indies cricket team rising from also-rans in the early 1970s to a
fearsome, all-conquering force by end of the decade, and at the same
time becoming cultural icons who inspired a generation of black people
still struggling to emerge from a history of slavery and oppression.
The story is told entirely from the West Indians' point of view, and in
their own words - this is not so much a discussion as a celebration of
an inarguably glorious period of sporting history. The list of
contributors is a cricketing hall-of-fame roll call: Richards, Lloyd,
Holding, Roberts, Greenidge, Haynes, Garner and more are joined by
other significant names from Caribbean culture. All are hugely
entertaining orators who could easily have kept this relatively short
production going for another 3 hours.
This is a film that should appeal to cricket fans, sports fans, and
those not remotely interested in sport. A film full of entirely new
interviews and perspectives will please the already-initiated, but the
wider significance of this cricketing success make it accessible, and
vital, viewing for everyone.
