Keeling's Caribbean Showcase: Roots Rock Reggae
Roots Rock Reggae

Jeremy Marre, 1977, 60 min

Director Jeremy Marre places the viewer in the center of the Jamaican reggae scene at its pinnacle in this remarkable documentary. The film is worth it just to see The Gladiators perform a never released song, "Play on Mr. Music" with Lee Perry at the boards of his legendary Black Ark recording studio. But Roots Rock Reggae offers so much more, including performances by Jimmy Cliff, Joe Higgs, the Abyssinians and U-Roy. In addition, Roots Rock Reggae places the music in the social context from which it emerged, offering views of Jamaican life in Kingston and the countryside, Rastafarianism and political turmoil. This is a must see for any fan of conscious roots music at the height of its brilliance.

About Keeling's Caribbean Showcase: Quarterly at the Maysles Cinema, Keeling Beckford, Reggae's most prolific videographer shares his vast library of films, concerts and vintage dancehall parties.

$10 suggested admission (No one turned away for lack of funds).
