Synopsis:
"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. 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 1970's (Bunny Wailer, Third World, Sly and Robbie) to the new generation of Dancehall artists (including Elephant Man and Alaine).
Throughout, the music's enduring themes are explored: ghetto violence; the legacy of Bob Marley; spirituality and Rastafarism; sexuality and the role of women; and the message of hope for a better life. Award-winning director Jerome Laperrousaz applies the cinematic rules of a work of fiction to the documentary format, 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.
