Peter Webber Interview @ Festiville 2019
DOWN THE REGGAE RABBITHOLE
Musically, Jamaica punches above its weight in proportion to its population. And likewise, films about Jamaican music - from The Harder They Come, to Rockers, to Babylon - have made an international impact well beyond their budgets.
This year sees the release of the latest in a distinguished line of reggae features - the documentary Inna De Yard. Helmed by British director Peter Webber (Girl With The Pearl Earring, Hannibal Rising) Inna De Yard tells the story of the group of veteran and younger Jamaican musicians who tour acoustically under the same name.
