From Jamaica to the World: Reggae on Film Curated by veteran writer and cultural critic, Lloyd Bradley, author of Bass Culture: When Reggae Was King, the festival offers insights and discussions with panels and other activities into the content, making and history of the films. It explores how they both reflected and contributed to shifts and changes in Jamaican culture, politics and more, in an independent age free from colonial rule.
