Independence for Trinidad

In 2011, we produced a three-part documentary on Trinidad and Tobago’s first prime minister, Eric Williams.  Inward Hunger: The Story of Eric Williams was, in many ways, a pioneering film, not the least because it shared Williams’ private life – something which had, prior to that, rarely been done on film.  One of the joys of working on the project was encountering a bevy of archival footage that illustrated Trinidad in the 60s and 70s, and this clip from the film, is a delight, in no small part because of that archival footage.  In honour of our own 50th anniversary of independence, have a look at how it came to pass.
