Dir. Ted Bafaloukos (1978) 100 min.

Jamaican Patois with English subtitles
In the history of Jamaican cinema Rockers is a close second to The Harder They Come as a crucial depiction of the politics and culture of its time. Legendary session drummer Leroy "Horsemouth" Wallace is the main character in a plot loosely resembling De Sica's Bicycle Thief. But the story is secondary to the documentation of a political and cultural context in which a new musical form, Steppers, emerged. With the increase in political violence on the island, the Steppers or Rockers beat appeared as a more rapid, militant variation on Reggae. Peter Tosh's anthem "Stepping Razor" is characterizes the role played by the many of the all star cast (including Big Youth, Jacob Miller and Burning spear) as cultural warriors fighting for recognition, against a racial elite and for basic survival.

About Keeling's Caribbean Showcase: Every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month at the Maysles Cinema, Keeling Beckford, Reggae's most prolific videographer shares his vast library of films, concerts and vintage dancehall parties.
