Event description
Black Cultural Archives & Fairweather Productions Present: A Special BHM Screening of HERO

About this Event

SCREENING TIME TO BE CONFIRMED

Director: Frances-Anne Solomon

Starring: Jimmy Akingbola (Holby City), Joseph Marcell (Fresh Prince of Belair), Fraser James (Terminator) and starring Trinidad's Nickolai Salcedo as Ulric Cross.

The Story: In 1941 Ulric Cross, a young man from Trinidad, left his island home to seek his fortune. He survived the Second World War as the RAF’s most decorated West Indian airman, but then his life followed a very different course, leading him to become a central figure in the independence movements sweeping Africa in the ’50s and ’60s.

HERO is not just about Cross’s extraordinary life and journey but about the dynamic and transformative times in which he lived. It tells the untold story of those Caribbean professionals who helped to liberate Africa from colonialism, shining a light on an important chapter in Caribbean history, and on Caribbean identity itself.
