Inward Hunger is Reviewed in Wasafiri


SAVANT’s production, “Inward Hunger: The Story of Eric Williams” has been reviewed in issue 74 of the contemporary journal, Wasafiri, by Louis James.

“The film gives new insights into William’s personality omitted from his own autobiography, Inward Hunger, and historical studies.  His daughter Erica speaks of the warm, humorous and affectionate father Williams himself may have felt too insecure to reveal in public. Totally disregardful of self, and fearing any appearance of weakness, in his last sudden and fatal illness Williams refused all offer of medical help, or the solace of company, and the day after his death was found dead under an African robe in his study.  More effectively than could a printed text, the multiple voices of Mariel Brown’s film present a complex, moving portrait of both Williams and the nation he did so much to create.”        Louis James
