Based on historical facts and the movie starring Danny Glover and Jeroen Krabbé, Tula -The Revolt is a true story about the Great Slave Revolt on the Caribbean island of Curaçao in 1795. Tula, a slave on the Kenepa plantation, is convinced that God made all human beings equal: he finds it increasingly difficult to ignore the inequality and injustice meted out to his people from their Dutch rulers. Stirred by news from abroad that France has abolished slavery on neighbouring Haiti, and that the New Dutch Republic is now under French rule, he sets out to improve the position of his fellow slaves. Unable – and unwilling – to comprehend his efforts at peaceful resistance, the colonial authorities respond with force. Undeterred, Tula nevertheless succeeds in uniting and inspiring his people in their struggle for freedom and equality
