The late, great Menelik Shabazz, a pioneer of black British independent filmmaking, examines the development and growth of the reggae genre Lovers Rock in this insightful, compassionately told documentary.

The film delves into the music developed in the 1970s and 80s Britain amidst growing political divides fostered under Thatcher’s time in office. Drawing from the forgotten histories of a black British sound, alongside shining a spotlight on how its culture of parties and clubs provided intimacy and healing for the marginalised, The Story of Lovers Rock is a must-see for anyone who knows the power music holds.
