Fire In Babylon
Directors:
Stevan Riley
The West Indies cricket team has reigned supreme longer than any team in history. Against the national liberation and Black Power movements of the '70s and '80s, extraordinary individuals with radical consciousness converged on the field to form the legendary team that transformed cricket. For a new generation of Caribbean people, cricket was more than just a game. Led by visionary captain Clive Lloyd, they set out to subvert the elitist, colonial values embodied by cricket with fearless spirit, remarkable catches, unparalleled endurance, and lightening-speed bowls. Intense training yielded the most physically powerful players the game had ever seenimmediately outmoding the days of potbellied cricketers. Despite the media's initial representation of the West Indies team as brutal "terrorists," read moregame after game of innovative plays and buoyant energy eventually meant even the opposing teams couldn't contain their exuberance over a West Indies victory.
