Almost 30 years have passed since a bloody coup in Grenada saw the assassination of the leader of the People’s Revolutionary Government, Maurice Bishop, along with his colleagues by members of the People’s Revolutionary Army.

Grenada, according to some scholars and researchers, even three decades later, still grapples with the chain of events surrounding the crisis.

As that island readies itself to observe the 30th anniversary of the coup next month, director and producer Bruce Paddington has focused his lens on that island with Forward Ever: The Killing of a Revolution — a 2 1/2 hour long epic documentary which highlights the revolutionary government of Grenada that came to power by a coup in 1979, and its demise with the bloody killings of October 19, 1983.

The documentary tells the story of the Grenada revolution as never before. Forward Ever: The Killing of a Revolution (2013), is a feature length documentary (150 minutes) directed and produced by Paddington. It explores the achievements and shortcomings of the People’s Revolutionary Government (1979-1983) as it attempted to forge a new revolutionary society.
