Announcing August 2022 at BFI Southbank: Reggae on Film, Kinuyo Tanaka, Satyajit Ray and more
This August BFI Southbank celebrates Reggae music and culture and explores its relationship to Cinema with a month-long season – From Jamaica to the world: Reggae on film. Programmed by Lloyd Bradley, writer of Bass Culture: When Reggae Was King and Sounds Like London: 100 Years of Black Music in the Capital, the season coincides with 60 years of Jamaican independence from Great Britain, a period in which the new nation remade itself culturally and creatively as well as politically. The season covers all aspects of that culture, as depicted in films such as Burning an Illusion (Menelik Shabazz, 1981), Sprinter (Storm Saulter, 2018), Dancehall Queen (Don Letts, Rick Elgood, 1997), Rudeboy: The Story of Trojan Records (Nicolas Jack Davies, 2018) and many more.
