We will be joined by writer, director and producer Frances-Anne Solomon, and lead actor Nickolai Salcedo for a Q&A following this screening.
Hero is the story of Ulric Cross, who in 1941, left Trinidad and became the RAF’s most decorated West Indian airman of WWII. His life took a dramatically different course when he followed the call of history and joined the Pan African and independence movements sweeping the world in the ‘50s and ‘60s. A film about the hitherto untold story of those Caribbean professionals who helped to liberate Africa from colonialism.
Presented in association with People’s History Museum as part of Black History Month.
