TEST The UK’s first Reggae Film Festival comes to The Drum
London in the 1950s was a cold place, or so it appeared if you were one of the thousands of newly arrived Jamaican immigrants. Against a backdrop of discrimination and race riots, this documentary charts the contribution and impact of soundmen Duke Vin and Count Suckle, who stowed away on a boat from Kingston bringing music that would change the face of UK culture.
