Tonight @ The Egyptian Theater - Perry Henzell Tribute: Godfather of Jamaican Film
Perry Henzell has been called "the most important filmmaker to emerge from the Caribbean." His landmark film The Harder They Come was responsible for introducing Reggae music to the world. With unique insight, visual sense and original thinking, he forever changed the way we look at things. Through his films, stage plays, and novels, the worldwide impact of his work continues to grow. The American Cinematheque salutes the memory of Perry Henzell with an evening dedicated to his feature films.
Discussion between films with Justine Henzell (Perry's daughter), producer David Garonzik, P.J. Soles (actress), Arthur Gorson (friend and producer), Roger Steffens (reggae historian) and special surprise guests. Moderated by Wayne Jobson.
