Inna De Yard, dir. Peter Webber, France 2019, 99 min., English, 12A
Inna De Yard is a joyous, vibrant film set against the backdrop of the lush green mountains of Jamaica, where a superstar group of reggae legends gather to record a new album of infectious hits in an unplugged style that harks back to their roots.
The musicians include Ken Boothe, Winston McAnuff, Kiddus I, Cedric Myton and Judy Mowatt, whose iconic songs capture the poetry and passion of their homeland.
Directed by Peter Webber, the film is studded with intimate acoustic versions of classic tracks (such as Ken Boothe’s Everything I Own) and dazzling live performances from the group’s unforgettable concert in Paris.
