Flicks N Chill: The UON Cinema and Movies Club is proud to present Gillo Pontecorvo’s forgotten classic!
Burn! is a fictionalised account of a slave revolution in the Caribbean during the nineteenth century. It follows the manipulations of Admiralty agent William Walker (Marlon Brando), as he incites a slave rebellion in order to further the interest of the British Empire. However, under the leadership of José Dolores (Evaristo Márquez) the revolt soon grows, threatening British imperial interests.
This film will be screened on Thursday 16 August, at 6pm in MCTH100 (the McMullin Lecture Theatre). Popcorn and health drinks will be provided. Our guest speaker, Dr Kit Candlin, will discuss the film’s portrayal of slavery and revolution in the Caribbean.
