Uptown Rockers
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.

“One of the most chilled things ever put on film”
