HIC and Doc’n Roll Film Festival presents: RUDEBOY: THE STORY OF TROJAN RECORDS
At Hull Truck Theatre: BUY TICKETS
HIC is delighted to be hosting Doc’Roll Film Festival, the UK’s celebration of music documentaries, for a third year. Doc’n Roll Film Festival is supported by the BFI using funds from the National Lottery to grow audience appetite and enjoyment for a wide range of independent British and international films about the power of music.
RUDEBOY tells the story of Trojan Records and the origins and the ongoing love affair between Jamaican and British Youth culture by placing it at the heart of a cultural revolution that unfolded in the council estates and shanty towns of the late ’60s and ’70s.
A film about the love affair between Jamaican and British youth culture told through the prism of one of the most iconic labels in the history of black music, Trojan Records. Combining archive footage, interview and drama, Rudeboy tells the story of the label by placing it at the heart of a cultural revolution that unfolded in the council estates and dancefloors of the late 60s and early 70s Britain, as immigration and innovation transformed popular music and culture. A cast of legendary artists including Lee “Scratch” Perry, Toots Hibbert, Ken Boothe, Neville Staple, Marcia Griffiths, Dave Barker, Dandy Livingstone, Lloyd Coxsone, Pauline Black, Derrick Morgan and more bring the sounds, stars and stories to life.
Featuring Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Toots Hibbert, Ken Boothe, Marcia Griffiths
