Fearless performance, taken from the 1978 Jamaican film Rockers, by Theodoros Bafaloukos. Originally intended to be a short documentary it turned into a full-length feature showing the reggae culture at its peak and the dreadful socio-economical reality of Kingston’s Trenchtown. The film starts as a loose interpretation of Vittorio De Sica’s The Bicycle Thief and turns into a reggae interpretation of the Robin Hood myth, with Horsemouth seting himself up in business selling records, when gangsters steal his bike. As things start to turn nasty and tensions build, Horsemouth and friends plot to end the gangsters reign of terror and restore justice to the people of Kingston.
