Ahead of its UK premiere as the Closing Night Film at this year’s annual summer in the city highlight Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House, we have the first look trailer for reggae documentary ‘Inna De Yard’.
‘Inna De Yard’ is a joyous, vibrant film set against the backdrop of the lush green mountains of Jamaica in which a superstar group of reggae legends gather to record a new album of infectious hits in an unplugged style that harks back to their roots. The musicians include Ken Boothe, Winston McAnuff, Kiddus I, Cedric Myton and Judy Mowatt whose iconic songs capture the poetry and passion of their homeland.
The landmark film recounts the history and continuing cultural importance of reggae music and paints an unforgettable portrait of these pioneering artists and their success, happiness and heartache during a lifetime immersed in this colossally influential music scene.
Directed by Peter Webber (Girl With A Pearl Earring), the film is studded with intimate acoustic versions of classic tracks (such as Ken Boothe’s Everything I Own) and live performances from their unforgettable all-star concert in Paris.
