Description

The charity WORLDwrite is delighted to be screening some of its greatest documentaries on Saturday 9th February 2019.

Every Cook Can Govern: The life, impact & works of C.L.R. James

Every Cook Can Govern – is the first feature-length documentary to explore the life, writings and politics of the great Trinidad-born revolutionary C.L.R. James who died in Brixton in 1989. This historical tour-de-force interweaves never before seen footage of C.L.R. James with unique testimony from those he knew, alongside interviews with the world’s most eminent scholars of James’ life, work and politics. Through a challenging overview of his life and his thoughts, from colonialism to cricket, Marxism to the movies and reading to revolution, what emerges in this film is an understanding of what it meant to be an uncompromising revolutionary in the 20th Century.

Every Cook Can Govern marks the culmination of a three year multimedia project arranged by the education charity WORLDwrite and its Citizen TV station WORLDbytes. Its unique production history – crowd-funded, crowd-featured and crowd-filmed – does credit to James’ conviction that every cook can govern. The film brings to life James’ thought and shows what it means to be uncompromising in one’s principles to the very end and to fearlessly question received wisdom and the world around us.

For more information about C.L.R. James and to watch the trailer, visit our C.L.R. James Knowledge Portal here.
