"Reggae Heroes on Parade '93" & "Babylon" [Keeling's Caribbean Showcase]
DOUBLE FEATURE:

7:30pm

**Never before seen footage from the vaults of Keeling Beckford**

"Reggae Heroes on Parade '93"
Dir. Keeling Beckford, 1993, 58 min.
Tappa Zukie gathered a lineup of reggae heroes to perform at Jamaica's famous dancehall, Coney Park, and Keeling was there, as always, to catch it on film. Only the greatest on this one: Sugar Minott, Johnnie Clark, Brigadiere Jerry, Melodians, U-Roy, Big Youth, Mykal Rose, and Tappa Zukie.

Classic Film of the Afro-Caribbean Diaspora:
"Babylon"
Dir. Franco Rosso, 1980, 91 min.

"Criminally Underrated!"
Babylon is set in South London at the start of the '80s, a time when reggae music was at its peak, along with a distinctively British brand of xenophobia and racism that saw American boxer Marvin Hagler pelted with bottles at Wembley after beating Alan "I'll never lose to a black man" Minter. The plot concerns Blue, lead chanter for Ital Lion Sound (played by Aswad singer and former Double Decker Brinsley Forde), in the run-up to a competition with a rival crew led by Jah Shaka (who appears as himself). Over the course of the film Blue socializes with his friends and clashes with his family, employer, and a local clan of racists, before going on a spiritual and physical journey through small hours London where he encounters a series of trials and temptations that set up the film's violent climax.

Part of the series: KEELING'S CARIBBEAN SHOWCASE, curated by Keeling Beckford of Keeling's Reggae Music and Videos.
