From the producers of Academy Award®-winning films The Last King of Scotland and One Day in September comes the captivating story of the domination of the West Indian cricket team who, with a combination of phenomenal skill and fearless spirit, became one of the greatest teams in sports history.
Told in the words of legendary and revered players including Sir Viv Richards, Michael Holding and Sir Clive Lloyd, FIRE IN BABYLON illustrates how this exceptional team fundamentally changed the sport forever. With their mastery of fast-bowling pitches that sometimes reached 90 miles per hour, they hijacked the genteel game of the privileged elite and replayed it on their own terms.
With impressive archival footage and a robust soundtrack that includes the likes of Bob Marley and the Wailers, Gregory Isaacs, Faithless and Horace Andy, FIRE IN BABYLON celebrates the emancipation of a people through sport, and paints a fascinating picture of an era rooted in sports, politics, pride, anti-colonial fury and music.
