RUDEBOY: The Story of Trojan Records

Posted by Fabio 8 October 2018

RUDEBOY is a film about the origins and ongoing love affair between Jamaican and British Youth culture. Combining archive footage, interview and drama – RUDEBOY tells the story of Trojan Records by placing it at the heart of a cultural revolution that unfolded in the council estates and dancefloors of late 60’s and early 70’ Britain and how that period of immigration and innovation transformed popular music and culture. Told by a cast of legendary artists including Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Toots Hibbert, Ken Boothe, Neville Staple, Marcia Griffiths, Dave Barker, Dandy Livingstone, Lloyd Coxsone, Pauline Black, Derrick Morgan and more.

RUDEBOY directed by Nicolas Jack Davies will premiere on the 12 of October at the Vue Cinema in Leicester Square, London as part of the British Film Institute’s London Film Festival.
