A music documentary that doesn’t attempt to chart the entire history of Jamaican reggae and dancehall culture, but instead deals with what it means to the performers, the audience and to Jamaican society as a whole. Shooting on Kingston streets and Jamaican beaches, using interviews with the stars – from Gregory Isaacs to Lady Saw, Bunny Wailer to Elephant Man, Capleton to Bounty Killer – and featuring some astonishing live performances, this valuable document is a riot of sights, sounds, sensations and provocative social commentary.
Author Chris Salewicz hosts a Q&A with the director Jerome Laperrousaz after the 6.30pm screening on Sunday 25 October 2009.
