Berlin Film Society heads to London
Celebrating Jamaican independence with Rockers.
The Berlin Film Society is planning its first international event, to be held in London.
The Society will celebrate 50 years of Jamaican independence with a screening of 1978 classic Rockers. Ted Bafaloukos’ film is about Rastafarian culture in Kingston, Jamaica, and how Leroy ‘Horsemouth’ Wallace tries to make it as a record distributor and musician.
The London screening is planned for Aug 6 at Cafe 1001 on Brick Lane, followed by a performance by reggae band The Drop. (The Berlin screening follows on Aug 10.)
The Society was set up during the 2012 Berlinale to host monthly screenings and pop-up film events.
