On Curaçao in the Dutch West Indies, Tula leads a revolt. The enslaved people who seized their freedom on the island in 1795 would be brutally repressed and slavery reimposed, but today the revolt is recognized as being the beginning of the end of slavery in the Dutch Caribbean. Leinders’ film features actor Danny Glover, who has advocated and worked to bring stories of slave revolution to the American cinema.
