Walter Rodney: What They Don’t Want You to Know Film Screening and Conversation with the Director

Join the NYU Gallatin Amplified Voices Series and Radical Books Collective for a film screening of the newly released documentary, Walter Rodney: What They Don’t Want You to Know, to be followed by a moderated conversation with film director Arlen Harris.

The documentary uses declassified security service documents, revealing interviews and reconstruction to tell an important, yet little known story and detailing Rodney’s global influence. Contributors include Angela Davis, Gina Miller, former President of Guyana Donald Ramotar, Edward and Donald Rodney, and Rodney’s wife Patricia Rodney.

Walter Rodney: What They Don’t Want You to Know is supported by The Walter Rodney Foundation and directed by father-and-son team Daniyal Harris-Vajda and Arlen Harris. In the last two years, Harris-Vajda worked as an Assistant Producer, Cameraman, and Editor at Noah Media Group. Harris is an award-winning program-maker with over 30 years’ experience in print, TV, and radio, working mainly for British television for World in Action, Panorama, and Dispatches.
