Forward Ever: The Killing of a Revolution (2013), directed and produced by Bruce Paddington.
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. Tracing the overthrow of the US supported Prime Minister, Eric Gairy, by the popular New Jewel Movement, and its own subsequent descent into tragic and violent infighting, the film features extensive, previously unseen file footage, as well as old and new interviews with many of the key players of the time.
