Initially released in 1980 at Cannes, though not in the U.S. for fear that it would incite racial tension, Rosso’s film follows a dancehall DJ (played by Brinsley Forde, the lead singer of the reggae band Aswad) in South London as he pursues his music and confronts the racism and xenophobia of employers, neighbors, and police in Margaret Thatcher’s England. The upbeat reggae soundtrack is a counterpoint to the unapologetic portrayal of urban life for Caribbean immigrants. Contains mature content, including violence and strong language.
