Every Cook Can Govern: The life, works & impact of C.L.R. James
This is the short trailer for the new film, Every Cook Can Govern: The life works & impact of C.L.R. James. The full film interweaves never-before-seen footage of C.L.R. James himself with personal contributions from those who knew him and astute historical and political analysis from leading scholars of his work.
The result is an epic feature-length documentary which grapples with issues from colonialism to cricket, from slavery to Shakespeare, from Marxism to the movies and from reading to revolution.
The film’s unique production history – crowd-funded, crowd-featured and crowd-filmed with over 200 volunteer camera operators, presenters and researchers – does credit to James’ conviction that every cook can govern.
The full film to screen and on DVD will be available from late April 2016.
