A single-set color musical tracing the history of the West Indies through several centuries of French oppression, Med Hondo’s hugely ambitious magnum opus was at the time the most expensive African film ever made (it cost $1.35 million). Set entirely on a huge slave ship that was constructed as the stage for centuries worth of Western colonial calamities to play out on. One of the truly inventive uses of space and the politics of space in the history of cinema.
