Critical Perspectives on Wars, Classes, & Empires

Screening: _BURN!_
(Dir. Gillo Pontecorvo, 1969)

William Walker (played by Marlon Brando), a British agent 
provocateur, arrives at the Caribbean island of Queimada -- a 
lucrative sugar-producing colony of Portugal (so named after the 
island was burned down to quell a slave revolt) -- to incite a 
nationalist revolution, only to have England replace Portugal as new 
neo-colonial master.  Used and betrayed by Walker, former slaves, led 
by Jose Dolores, rise up against the comprador regime installed by 
the British.  Queimada will burnŠagain.
