This is the long awaited and hugely ambitious feature documentary from Jerome Laperrousaz which charts the rise of Reggae from its humble

beginnings to the massive international, cultural force it is today. An unprecedented array of interview material from the Roots aristocracy

(Gregory Isaacs, Bunny Wailer, Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare, to mention just a few) is underscored by a throbbing, classic soundtrack.

The film also comes up to date with the Dancehall artistes who are continuing to transform the genre with an amalgam of social commentary and blistering sexuality.

The film itself is a visual feast, taking in the variety and beauty of the island of Jamaica and its people from Kingston to the Blue Mountains. For all fans of the Music, this is the biggest party in town.
