Something you should see…Fire In Babylon

“One people, one nation, one destiny” – a quote that best describes the purpose of the West Indies cricket team, taken from the documentary film, Fire in Babylon. If ever there was a movie that represents the plight and triumph of a sports team, this is it. Legends from the West Indies cricket team of the ‘70s and ‘80s give a personal insight into the vicious rivalries with England and Australia, the rise of cultural pride and the glory of Caribbean-style cricket.

Expect a hard-hitting (literally) look at the journey players such as Viv Richards, Colin Croft and Clive Lloyd took to prove that the Caribbean boys were more than just a laughing stock (something England definitely found out the hard way). The use of a pumping reggae soundtrack to accompany the interviews links in with the Rastafarian teachings about ‘Babylon’ — the negative system holding down the people of the African Diaspora. The fight against colonial oppression, using the power of cricket, is also an underlining theme that runs throughout the movie.

Verdict: A must-see for the younger generation and those in search of a spark of inspiration. (Words: Aaron-Spencer Charles)
