Reggae Film Festival
A riotous burst of energy and colour, almost documentary in style, Rockers is a cameo- packed gutsy thriller of the dread-locked, ganja-smoking drummer Leroy ‘Horsemouth’ Wallace’s attempts to succeed in the cut-throat Jamaican music biz which provides much insight, amusement and education.
The film captures reggae at its musical apex with a magnificent soundtrack and a cast reads like the ultimate Reggae Hall Of Fame, featuring some of the leading musicians and producers of the day: Peter Tosh, Gregory Isaacs, Lee Perry, Dennis Brown, Bunny Wailer, Third World, Big Youth, The Heptones, Robbie Shakespeare, Leroy Smart, Dillinger and the fantastic Burning Spear.
