After the Falklands War, British soldiers were sent on a ‘sunshine tour’ of Belize. In 1983, one of them shot and killed a local farmer, 55 year old Antonio Alford, who only had one leg. The British army said Antonio was a cannabis grower who pointed a shotgun at the patrol commander. But local people say Antonio only had one leg, after a shark accident. Known as ‘One foot Tony’, he was a friend of Belize’s prime minister and helped run his local football club. So did he really pose a lethal threat? 35 years later, investigative journalist, Phil Miller traveled to Belize and tracked down an eye-witness to this controversial killing, Errol Flowers. One Foot Down is a story of war, trauma and those who are left on the margins. Miller’s film, commissioned by New Internationalist magazine, raises disturbing questions about how the UK Ministry of Defence looks after not just its own troops, but also the civilians who live in countries where it has overseas military bases.
