Fire Burn Babylon
57 min UK 2009 Dir: Sarita Siegel
Don Letts narrates us through the story of a crew of Rastafarians evacuated to London in the aftermath of a volcanic eruption in Montserrat. Living in exile in inner city East London, the friends reinvent themselves as “rude-boy” rappers and small time hustlers on the nightclub circuit. The film examines how Montserrat’s Rastafarians adjust to life in England as they pitch between enjoying the thrills of the city and committing to Rastafari ideals. Will their dreams of celebrity be realised before the law catches up with them, and can these ‘mighty-lions-of-Judah’ remain true to their spiritual identity?
Followed by Q & A with Director Sarita Siegel and key cast members
