Made In Jamaica [DVD] [2006]

Product Description
Made In Jamaica is a powerful and intimate portrait of the leaders of the reggae movement. It is also the story of how an island nation of only three million people channel poverty, desperation, hedonism and the harshness of their existence into a politically conscious, joyful and spiritual music with a universal reach a celebration of life in the Kingston ghetto. Extras: MUSIC / LIVE PERFORMANCE

French writer-director Jerome Laperrousaz's documentary MADE IN JAMAICA opens with the tragic yet all-too-familiar murder of a reggae superstar - Bogle - and his celebrity-studded funeral, attended by multiple generations of Jamaican musicians. The film then springboards into a broad and enormously ambitious, loosely-knit exploration of the reggae subculture in all of its facets. Laperrousaz intercuts original interviews and live concert footage (often filmed on the shores and streets of Kingston, where reggae was born) with such giants as Third World, Gregory Isaacs (who pays tribute to Bogle), Bunny Wailer, Toots, Beres Hammond and Capleton.
