Third Horizon Film Festival presents the U.S. premiere of Being Blacker.

 

Made with intimacy and insight, this is the story of Blacker Dread, a renowned reggae producer and record shop owner from Brixton, the traditional home of London’s Jamaican migrants. Focused on a tumultuous time in Blacker’s life—the death of his mother and the prospect of his first prison sentence—the documentary widens to become an affecting portrait of Blacker’s family and friends. The film then makes its way to Jamaica, where Blacker’s partner, Maureen, is ensuring their young son maintains exceptional grades, having been excluded from school in the UK. With boundless empathy for its subjects, Being Blacker offers an excellent understanding of the challenges that Britain’s Caribbean community continues to face.
