British Reggae Movie Babylon (1980) released on DVD

Babylon is a movie about the british sound system culture of the late 70ies. Aswad's Brinsley Forde features as lead actor. Also Jah Shaka makes an appearance with his sound system. Great Music like "Warrior Charge" by Aswad and other hits of the day as well as extended Dub textures produced by the mighty Dennis Bovell add to the authenticity of this great flick.

The sound track was released on CD a few years back already. Unfortunately my favourite Dennis Bovel dub from the movie (featured in the school robbery scene) did make it neither on the original vinyl O.S.T. nor on the extended CD release.

This is kind of off topic, but does anyone know any other decent reggae based films other than Bablyon, Rockers, Roots Time and The Harder They Come? Rockers is my favorite!

Also, Jamaican films in general are of interest to me, especially ones like Shottas, Third World Cop and Rude Boy: Jamaican Don. They are all very very cheesey but very enjoyable! Cool

Very good movie reflecting the tensions in UK society under Thatcher,
showing police violence and how hard it was for many young blacks at
that time. Sountrack is Big

Jah Shacka in action:
