Full Length European Version! QUEIMADA (aka BURN!), 1969, MGM Repertory, 132 min. Dir. Gillo Pontecorvo. This controversial real life saga of 19th-century British colonials instigating a slave revolt to serve their own imperialist agenda is a trenchant allegory of U.S. interference in the Caribbean, and features one of Marlon Brando's most mesmerizing performances as the bigger-than-life Sir William Walker. [35mm] Introduction by Larry Karaszewski and Maurizio Grimaldi, son of QUEIMADA producer Alberto Grimaldi.
