Details

Rudeboy is a film about the love affair between Jamaican and British youth culture told through the prism of one of the most iconic labels in the history of black music, Trojan Records. It tells the story of the label by placing it at the heart of a cultural revolution that unfolded on the council estates and dancefloors of late 1960s and early 1970s Britain, as immigration and innovation transformed popular music and culture. 

The film's cast of legendary artists includes Lee “Scratch” Perry, Toots Hibbert, Ken Boothe, Neville Staple, Marcia Griffiths, Dave Barker and more, bringing the sounds, stars and stories to life.

Followed by a Q&A with director Nicolas Jack Davies. Screening as part of Doc'n Roll Film Festival.
