      Friday, OCTOBER 5 , 7 PM

      BURN! Marlon Brando
      Engrossing drama, laced with political allegory and based on a true
      incident, stars Marlon Brando as a British agent sent to a
      19th-century Caribbean island to instigate a revolt by sugar cane
      workers against their Portuguese overseers. In Gillo Pontecorvo's
      epic drama, secret agent Sir William Walker (Marlon Brando) stirs up
      a revolution in a Caribbean colony. On a mission to help Britain gain
      control of a Portuguese sugar cane island, Walker incites the locals
      to rise up against colonist rule. But a decade after the revolt,
      political problems continue to plague the nation, and Walker must
      return to the island to help the Crown protect its economic
      interests. Gillo Pontecorvo represents the fury and tragic
      disappointment of colonial uprising with a brilliant precision. It is
      one of the best documents around describing how a minority of
      European machinators were able to subdue entire societies. This is
      one of the major works of poltical cinema.
      In English with English subtitles for the hearing impaired. 112 minutes
