"The Terror and the Time" explores British colonialism in Guyana by focusing on three historical moments of developed antagonism between the exploited and the exploiter. The film portrays the organisation, action, and eventual repression of the forces of liberation. Interviews of those who had been involved in the 1953 struggle are combined with news clippings, newsreel footage, and the poetry and music of Guyanese artists and the year of the first elections under a provisional democratic constitution.
