Screening of ‘Fire in Babylon’ I 16 June I 6pm

Babylon – it’s not a place. It’s a practice that is unrighteous.
Me not rating you because of your colour, not treating each other as human beings, that is Babylon
.” – Bunny Wailer

We invite you to join us for a screening of Fire in Babylon, a film that takes us through the ups and downs of West Indies cricket through the 70s and 80s. The film documents the significance of the sport in defining the Caribbean struggle for dignity and equality.

It was representing a region, representing something more significant that just cricket.
It was a matter of feeling of worth.
” – Michael Holding

Following last week’s screening of When We Were Kings, this is the second in a short series of films on moments in the history of sports that mark political and cultural change.

Here we are, several dots on the map, dominating the world.” – Andy Roberts
