Inna de Yard

France | 2019 | documentary | 109 min. DocFilmMusic competition

The film title is the name of a unique project that has brought together legendary reggae veterans, such as Ken Boothe, Winston McAnuff or Cedric Myton, and their much younger colleagues. This meeting produced not only the excellent acoustic album “The Soul of Jamaica” released in 2017 but also the confirmation of the viability of this music among next generations. The film shows an average day in the lives of older men with dreads as of today. It also evokes the dark sides of the life on the rocking island and the atmosphere of freedom at the birthplace of this musical phenomenon.
