Directed by Jeremy Marre

With Jimmy Cliff, Joe Higgs, Bob Marley, Lee Perry, Jack Ruby

Famed music documentary producer Marre (James Brown: Soul Survivor) went to Jamaica for a snapshot of the reggae scene at its peak and returned with a unique, timeless document that includes: Lee “Scratch” Perry recording the Upsetters; Junior Murvin, and the Congos at the Black Ark studio; shots of reggae forefather Vincent Chin’s renowned record store, Randy’s; producer Jack Ruby auditioning new performers; international star Jimmy Cliff in the studio performing “Wanted Man;” blight and “sufferation” over Joe Higgs performing acoustically; the Abyssinians chanting their Rasta anthem “Satta Massagana;” Inner Circle at their most famous, living high up in the hills of Kingston, them belly full away from the sufferahs; and much, much more.
