SYNOPSIS: 

The invasion of Grenada by US forces in 1983 echoed around the world and put an end to 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, with its the multiple perspectives and different narratives, explores this key event in the history of the Caribbean. The eloquence and passion of Maurice Bishop is apparent as he defends the revolution on such critical issues as human rights and the need for a true peoples’ democracy.

On 25 October 1983, Ronald Reagan sent 8,000 members of the US Armed Forces to invade Grenada, an island with a population of just over 100,000 people, in an operation which he named ‘American Fury’. It is an operation he had been planning ever since the bloodless revolution of 1979 had displaced the US-anointed tyrannical Prime Minister, Eric Gairy.

Thirty years later, Dr Bruce Paddington, Lecturer at the University of the West Indies, has marked the anniversary of the massacre at Fort Rupert on 19 October 1983 and the US invasion with a truly extraordinary film

The ordering process for me to get my copy of the DVD was simple. I would suggest that you try and find a way for this DVD and other video products be available for delivery via online streaming. The DVD itself was a great history lesson on the New Jewel Movement government which came to an end too quickly.
