The free screening is presented by the trinidad+tobago film festival (ttff) in partnership with the Department of Cultural Studies, UWI. Described as addressing 'the most dramatic and violent racial conflict in modern Canadian history' by povmagazine.com, 'Ninth Floor' examines the Sir George Williams University riot of February 1969, when six Caribbean students mounted a protest against institutional racism.

It presents never-before-seen footage of the students’ protest and occupation of the ninth floor computer room, as well as interviews with several of the students involved.
