Doc'n Roll Film Festival presents: Rudeboy the Story of Trojan Records + Q&A & DJ Set 15
Showing as part of Black History Month
A film about the love affair between Jamaican and British youth culture, told through the prism of one of the most iconic labels in the history of black music, Trojan Records.
In the late 60s and early 70s, a cultural revolution was unfolding across council estates and dancefloors. Immigration and innovation were transforming popular music and culture, and at the heart of it all, was Trojan Records.
Formed from engaging dramatisations, interviews and exclusive archive footage, and featuring a cast of legendary artists including Lee “Scratch” Perry, Toots Hibbert, Ken Boothe, Neville Staple, Marcia Griffiths, Dave Barker and more, Rudeboy: The Story of Trojan Records is an energetic tribute to Jamaican music, and the ways it paved the way for modern multi-cultural Britain.
The film will be followed by a post-screening discussion (guests TBC), and we’ll be celebrating the music of Trojan Records with a guest DJ in the bar afterwards, expect good vibes and great tunes.
