With Countryman, Hiram Keller, Carl Bradshaw, Basil Keane, Freshey Richardson, Kristina St. Clair

Starring real-life Rasta fisherman Countryman (who still lives on Jamaica’s Hellshire beach), this beloved camp workout is both a celebration of Ital living and a politically tinged adventure with a corrupt police captain (beloved Jamaican actor Bradshaw), obeah apparitions, and a dreadlocked contract killer with his own dub theme music (Aswad’s seriously heavy “Mosman Skank”). The plot is simple: two tourists (Fellini Satyricon’s Keller (!) and St. Clair, his real-life wife) crash their plane in a beachfront paradise, get nursed back to life by the titular Rasta superhero and natural mystic, and are subsequently framed by corrupt police and have to escape. The whole thing is set to dread tunes featuring Marley, Perry, and Toots and an atmospheric score by famed session keyboardist Wally Badarou.
