Made in Jamaica
Directed by Jérôme Laperrousaz
Jamaica/France I 110 min I English
Made in Jamaica tells the story of how musicians on a small Caribbean island nation of only three million people distilled their human experience into songs whose messages resonate around the world. Music born of both desperation and hope, reggae is Jamaica’s answer to the blues. Never before has a single feature film presented this musical revolution with such intensity! You’ll meet reggae luminaries and hear performances by the greats—from Bunny Wailer, Gregory Isaacs, Toots & the Maytals, and the legendary rhythm section of Sly Dunbar & Robbie Shakespeare…to Elephant Man, Lady Saw, and 2006 Grammy Nominee Third World.
“If you want to understand what is popular music, its power and its role in a postcolonial society…then it is absolutely necessary to watch Made in Jamaica.” — Le Nouvelle Observateur
