Inna de Yard + Q&A and After Party
INNA DE YARD plus Q&A with director Peter Webber and musician Jah9... followed by after party and photo exhibition Upstairs at The Ritzy presented by ISLAND GIRLS ROCK and KNOW YOUR CARIBBEAN.
INNA DE YARD is a joyous, vibrant film set against a backdrop of the lush green mountains of Jamaica, that sees a superstar group of reggae legends gather to record a new album of infectious hits in an unplugged style that harks back to their roots. The musicians include Ken Boothe, Winston McAnuff, Kiddus I, Cedric Myton and Judy Mowatt whose iconic songs capture the poetry and passion of their homeland.
Directed by Peter Webber (Girl With A Pearl Earring), the film is studded with intimate acoustic versions of classic tracks (such as Ken Boothe's Everything I Own), and dazzling live performances from their unforgettable all-star concert in Paris.
Recounting the history and continuing cultural importance of reggae music, this landmark film paints an unforgettable portrait of these pioneering artists; their successes and failures, happiness and heartache, during a lifetime immersed in this colossally influential music scene.
After the screening join us Upstairs for an after party presented by Island Girls Rock and Know Your Caribbean.
JUST VIBEZ - the DJ collective who bring the vibes no matter where in the world they go. The Caribbean's finest representation of dope ass music curation.
DJ EYE & I (aka Lizzy Brown) - an island girl hailing from Jamaica who expresses herself through photography and music and merges her love of both to tell the stories of 'yard'.
The sublime work of photographer Lizzy Brown will be on display throughout the after party. Lizzy is one of the most prolific and respected reggae photographers on the circuit. She is as passionate as she is talented. A true reggae culture ambassador.
