The 1983 US-led invasion Grenada was criticised widely. The United Nations (UN) called for a cessation of the ‘armed intervention’. While, the UN Security Council stated that it ‘deeply deplores the armed intervention in Grenada, which statutes a flagrant violation of international law.’ 

The invasion echoed around the world and ended a unique experiment in Caribbean politics. What were the circumstances that led to this extraordinary chain of events? This comprehensive, gripping and revealing documentary tells the story of the Grenada revolution as never before. The film features extensive, previously unseen file footage, as well as old and new interviews with many of the key players of the time.

The film’s director, Bruce Paddington will be present to discuss aspects of his film with the audience and believes that the “country still suffers from painful memories of this period but the healing has begun as all the prisoners have now been released from captivity. It would educate people who were very young at the time...because a lot of the material that we used in the film have never been seen before. It is going to be a major education tool and will help in bringing some form of reconciliation.”

Paddington is an award winning filmmaker, having made over 500 films and television programmes. This latest film 'Forward Ever: The Killing of A Revolution', highlights the revolutionary government of Grenada, that came to power by a coup in 1979, and its demise with the bloody killings of 1983.

This comprehensive, gripping and revealing documentary features extensive, previously unseen file footage and tells the story of the Grenada revolution as never before.
