DJ for Brixton reggae sound system ‘Ital Lion Sound’, Blue is getting ready for the local sound system showdown with rival crew, Jah Shaka. But as the day of the competition approaches, Blue suddenly sees his life falling apart. After losing his job, he’s beaten up by the police on a trumped-up charge, and then discovers that all of his sound equipment has been destroyed by local white residents. Tired of having to deal with the constant daily pressures of racial-hatred and intolerance, Blue finally decides to take matters into his own hands.
In the year when the Windrush scandal came to light, this film will help us explore how much (or how little) things have changed for members of the Windrush generation living in London and the UK.
Followed by a Q&A.
This screening is part of the London Migration Film Festival.
