No Bass Like Home: The Harder They Come

No Bass Like Home: The Harder They Come
Description

The first and still the best-known feature film ever to emerge from the island of Jamaica, the massive success of The Harder They Come helped to popularise reggae music around the world. Almost 50 years later it’s still a bracing, raw, unforgettable film.

 

Reggae icon Jimmy Cliff plays Ivan, a country boy who heads for Kingston with dreams of musical stardom. But following a series of encounters with ruthless record bosses, wicked weed dealers and corrupt cops he ends up on the run, becoming a hero to the common man.

 

With its never-out-of-print soundtrack sporting classics from Cliff, Desmond Dekker and The Maytals – plus a cameo from the magnificent Prince Buster – The Harder They Come is a sell-out every time it screens, so grab your tickets now.

 

Special £5 tickets for Brent residents are supported by Brent 2020 Culture Fund.

 

No Bass Like Home is part of Brent 2020, London Borough of Culture programme exploring the stories, art and emotions that hold life in Brent together.
