A popular Dancehall film, which has already made waves in North America and Europe, will finally be shown in the Caribbean as Trinidad and Tobago prepares to unveil it in the coming days.
Hit Me With Music, a film featuring many of Dancehall's pioneers, will be featured at the annual WeBeat Festival, which will take place between June 2 and June 7 in the Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Tobago. Additionally, the film hails as a part of the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival as well as the BPTT Community Cinergy series of film screenings.
Directed by Spanish filmmaker, Miquel Galofre, Hit Me With Music features a plethora of elite Dancehall acts credited with making the genre a global phenomenon while highlighting elements of Jamaica's music that form an integral part of the island's nightlife. Additionally, the Dancehall documentary, which was originally screened last year, takes notice of many controversial trends that have greatly impacted Jamaican culture including skin bleaching, feuds between prominent Dancehall acts as well as the 'Daggering' dance which became popular between 2007 and 2009.
