  • Directed by: Perry Henzell
  • Cast: Jimmy Cliff, Janet Barkley, Carl Bradshaw, Ras Daniel Hartman

A screening of one of Jimmie Durham's favourite films, plus 'The Pursuit of Happiness', a short written and directed by the sculptor himself. The main feature is a brilliant fusion of reggae soundtrack and gangster story as country boy Jimmy Cliff comes to town and finds himself seduced into a bad way of living. The music is tremendous, the take on its business machinations truthful, the story rivetting.
