Dr. Walter Rodney, a Guyanese historian and revolutionary, is the subject of this doc-umentary. Filmed in Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica, Tanzania, the US, and the UK, it features revelatory interviews and explores the life of a guerilla intellectual - according to his own wording - whose political thought and action remain as relevant as ever to contemporary anti-colonial, internationalist class struggle. 41 years after his assassination in 1980 by the authoritarian Forbes Burnham government in Guyana with the support of the CIA and MI5, the Guyanese government has finally admitted the state's involvement in his assassination.
