Burn! (Queimada)
Gillo Pontecorvo | Italy | 1969 | 112mins | 12

Sir William Walker, a professional mercenary, is sent by the British to Queimada, a Caribbean island. Walker must instigate a slavery rebellion to break the Portuguese colonial sugar monopoly and manipulates an enslaved African, Jose Dolores to be the revolt leader. After damaging the sugar industry, Walker’s mission is completed.
Ten years later Walker is send back to destroy the rebellion he manufactured himself, now damaging the British sugar interest. He is facing Dolores again, the rebel leader he once created.
Like The Battle of Algiers (1966) Pontecorvo addresses third-world politics in Queimada (or Burn!), again with a script heavily influenced by Frantz Fanon’s The Wretched of the Earth. This time narrated as an adventure film and a colonial allegory and extended with neo-imperialist politics. A prophetic film that allegorised the fate of many former colonies in the Caribbean and in Africa.

Screening as part of Black History Month.

EVENT CINEMA: Royal Opera Don Pasquale
Approximate running time: about 2 hours 30 minutes. Sung in Italian with English subtitles.

Royal Opera Don PasqualeScreened Live from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London.

Royal Opera favourite Bryn Terfel heads the cast for this new production of Donizetti’s comedy of domestic drama across two generations. The witty story of a middle-aged man whose supposed young wife runs rings around him – with her own ulterior romantic purpose in mind – has long delighted and surprised audiences, not least as presented with the sparkle of its music and the virtuoso skill of its performers. Damiano Michieletto’s exhilarating production shows how contemporary the characters still are and how immediate and touching the story remains.
