Guerilla (1970s UK civil rights drama produced by Idris Elba)

edited April 25 in Lights, Camera, Action!

Guerrilla is “a love story set against the backdrop of one of the most politically explosive times in U.K. history,” according to its official synopsis.

“It tells the story of a politically active couple whose relationship and values are tested when they liberate a political prisoner and form a radical underground cell in 1970s London. Their ultimate target becomes the Black Power Desk, a true-life, secretive counter-intelligence unit within Special Branch dedicated to crushing all forms of black activism.”

“We’re excited to partner with our friends at Sky to bring a fascinating and unexplored story spearheaded by John and Idris, two major creative talents at the top of their game,” said David Nevins, president and chief executive officer, Showtime Networks Inc. “Guerrilla will surely keep our audience at their edge of their seats.”

“It’s been a long time desire of mine to collaborate with Mr. Ridley and his work here is nothing short of a masterclass in character building and story-telling,” Elba said in a statement. “TV is in for a treat.”

    I'm a bit iffy about this one. It's Sky Atlantic, plus they've been able to attract the likes of Idris Elba and Frieda Pinto... I might give it a watch at some point.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems like they're lowkey shitting on the people in that movement during that time.



    We'll see how it plays out over the remaining episodes, but that seems to be an underlying theme.

    So, you're mad because I quoted a post.....that included a scantily clad pic of you......that you sent to another man.....while both of you are supposed to be in committed relationships with other people?

    Hilarious.

    Most of your business is public knowledge Kathryn.

    You should learn to exercise more discretion.

    You're too old to continuously find yourself in compromising situations.

    I'm extremely disappointed in your behavior and expect much better of you in the future.

    With compassion, concern, sincerity, and due diligence.

    That's a horrible thing to say.

    I'm sorry you feel that way Kathryn.

    However, I've never heard of anyone dying of old age at 43.

    My words must've really hit home for you to want me to die tonight.

    I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings.

    Instead of wishing me death, your time would be better served reflecting on your past transgressions and thinking about what steps you can take to improve yourself.

    You wished death upon me Kathryn.

    Solely because I quoted a post which featured you in a bathrobe with your privates partially exposed.

    A pic that would have never been publicly accessible had it not been for your carelessness and bad judgement.

    Essentially, you want me to die for your mistakes.

    Smarten up Kathryn.

    If anyone caught feelings it's you.

    This is just entertainment for me.

    @deadeye nah mate, fuck off, I literally hate seeing your name in my notifications because I know it's your FUCKING LIST. I'm tired of being @'d to some thread because of your shitty list, makes me just want to punch you in your fat fucking face.

    You're a digrace to creepset and 'mature' black men the world over.

    Fuck your entire existence.


    You are a plain idiot. Since you cannot give birth nor have a proper sense of enduring and suffering you cannot understand my post.

    @Westie has put her life on the line several times to give life. I wish I had an ounce of that courage, endurance and resiliance.

    Peace

    @deadeye

    Yeah, there's been a pretty big backlash against how black brits have been portrayed, particularly black women who have been all but sidelined in this story.
    When asked where were the black women, John Ridley literally started crying (literally) and said he made the main characters have a mixed race relationship because he and his Japanese wife, who's a "fighter", still face issues that the characters faced back then (don't ask me to make sense of this statement but that was essentially his response).

    The funniest thing is they created this drama based loosely on a real Indian person who was part of the black power movement over here but he was a man by the name of Farrukh Dhondy. Farrukh also had an Indian wife, so basically Ridley made this couple the centre of this story as an ode to his wife and his own interracial relationship.

    As someone who's black British and have family members involved in that movement, it's a shame it's been brought to tv so inaccurately. I expected more from Ridley because of how he does American Crime, but he went and injected himself into a story for no reason, and it shows.




    @peeny_wally2



    Ok, I knew something was off.




    Glad to get a black British perspective on this for confirmation.




    The Irish and Indian girlfriends........and the lack of a strong black female presence......were exactly what raised my antennae.




    Not to mention the black woman who was working as an informant for that racist cop (fed, or whatever he was) and the dude whose snitching led to one of the leaders being killed.




    Ridley's definitely doing the show.........and the movement the show is based on...........a disservice.
