Ahead of the film’s release next month, we are delighted to reveal our official quad poster for Peter Webber’s new reggae documentary Inna De Yard! Check it out below:
Inna De Yard is a joyous, vibrant film set against the backdrop of the lush green mountains of Jamaica in which a superstar group of reggae legends gather to record a new album of infectious hits in an unplugged style that harks back to their roots. The musicians include Ken Boothe, Winston McAnuff, Kiddus I, Cedric Myton and Judy Mowatt whose iconic songs capture the poetry and passion of their homeland. Directed by Peter Webber (Girl With A Pearl Earring), the film is studded with intimate acoustic versions of classic tracks (such as Ken Boothe’s Everything I Own) and dazzling live performances from their unforgettable all-star concert in Paris.
With the soul of Amazing Grace and the narrative intrigue of Searching For Sugarman, Inna De Yard is the Buena Vista Social Club for reggae. This landmark film recounts the history and continuing cultural importance of reggae music and paints an unforgettable portrait of these pioneering artists and their success, happiness and heartache during a lifetime immersed in this colossally influential music scene.
Inna De Yard arrives at cinemas across the UK on 30 August. The film has its UK premiere at the Closing Night of Somerset House’s Film4 Summer Screen on 21 August – get your tickets now.
