A new film of A. Sivanandan, in conversation with Colin Prescod, entitled Catching History on the Wing will have its premiere at an event on 18 April and copies are now available for sale. 

A. Sivanandan is best known as a key thinker, writer and activist on racism and imperialism, the founder editor of Race & Class and the author of the award-winning novel on Sri Lanka, When Memory Dies. In this short film, made by Sri Lankan filmmaker Prasanna Ratnayake (Postcolonial Films), he talks about his most recent preoccupations: the impact of the technological revolution on class struggle, globalisation and the development of the market state, the stirrings of popular movements worldwide in 2011 and the possibility of reformulating struggle so as to ‘catch history on the wing’
