Part of Film 2019
Directed by Perry Henzell | 1972

With Jimmy Cliff, Janet Bartley, Carl Bradshaw

This landmark of Jamaican cinema stars legendary roots musician Jimmy Cliff as an aspiring singer who travels from the country to the streets of Kingston in search of stardom—only to become a crusading, anti-establishment outlaw of mythic proportions. The “definitive postcolonial cult-movie musical” (The Village Voice), The Harder They Come is an electrifying time capsule of 1970s Jamaica that introduced reggae to the world.
