Made In Jamaica Reggae Feature Film in Production for Spring Completion
Published October 16, 2005


Made in Jamaica is a powerful portrait of the leaders of the reggae music movement and how it has become a worldwide phenomenon. It is the story of how a small island nation of only three million people took their pain and misery and turned those emotions into songs that resonate around the world. Reggae is Jamaica’s blues: a music of both desperation and hope. Reggae music sprang into life in the 70’s. It was the first time that a third world country had made its voice heard on such a large scale. Instantly recognizable, the reggae sound is a celebration of life itself. Now a new generation of reggae artists has emerged and its fathers are still in Jamaica.

Dance Hall, emerging from reggae, is drawing large crowds across the globe. At its origin, the Dance Hall concept is heavily influenced by religious overtones. Like rap music, Dance Hall’s message is powerful and straightforward, with lyrics about sex, violence, and social issues, including much owomen’s rights.

From their native ghetto to international fame, Made in Jamaica recounts the individual stories of these artists who represent the Jamaican Dream.

Made in Jamaica Director Jerome Laperrousaz's past films include:

• "Prisoners in the Street, Third World" 1980 (Cannes Festival Selection)
• "Human" casting Terence Stamp and Jeanne Moreau, 1975
• "Continental Circus", 1972
