HERO is a feature docudrama inspired by the life of Trinidadian war hero, judge and diplomat Ulric Cross, whose long life spanned key moments of the 20th Century including the Second World War, independence movements in Africa and the Caribbean, the rise of a new brand of Black leaders around the world, the coming of age of Caribbean and African societies in the eighties and nineties incidents and shifts that defined our present reality. Ulric’s story intersected with that of many of the great leaders of his time, including George Padmore, CLR James, Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana and Julius Nyerere of Tanzania.nnThe film follows Cross, as he lives through the sweep of history, from colonialism to independence, and the evolution of Pan Africanism, an ideology first created by Caribbean intellectuals, that aimed to unite and strengthen people of African heritage worldwide.
