A powerful and intimate portrait of the leaders of the reggae movement which shows how an island nation of 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. Featuring live performances and recording sessions alongside interviews, Made In Jamaica shows off some of the greatest and most successful Jamaican artists of all ages, from the 1970s to the new generation of Dancehall artists. Throughout, the music's enduring themes are explored: ghetto violence, the legacy of Bob Marley, religion and Rastafarism, sexuality and the role of women and the message of hope for a better life. Director Jérome Laperrousaz applies the cinematic rules of a work of fiction to the documentary format, with the voices and emotions of the artists always in the foreground. The result is a direct and compelling portrait of the people who represent the Jamaican Dream.
