South Arts Film Series: Reggae BoyzVisit Website
South Arts Film Series returns with the first in-person screening of the season! Plagued with one of the highest murder rates in the world, Jamaica tries to reinvigorate its populace by qualifying their national soccer team – the “Reggae Boyz” – for the 2014 World Cup. When their efforts start to fall short, Winnie Schäfer, a colorful German coach, enters the scene and forms an unlikely alliance with a Rastafarian factory worker and legendary reggae musicians to unite Jamaica beyond the soccer pitch. Reggae Boyz uses pop cultures’ most transcendent forces – sports and music – to delve into the heart and soul of Jamaica.
