HERO: INSPIRED BY THE EXTRAORDINARY LIFE AND TIMES OF MR. ULRIC CROSS
In 1941, a young man from Trinidad named Ulric Cross leaves his island home to seek his fortune. He emerges from World War II as the RAF’s most decorated West Indian. Cross’s long life spanned key moments of the 20th century, including independence in Africa and the Caribbean. Shot in Ghana, the UK, and Trinidad and Tobago, the film is not just about his life but also the transformative times in which he lived, and tells the untold story of those Caribbean professionals who helped to liberate Africa from colonialism.
We are delighted to welcome Ulric Cross's son Richard Finch for a post-screening Q&A.
