Khalik Allah explores his mother’s home country, Jamaica, and invokes its beautiful, resilient, and rebellious spirit. Moving between different speakers, the film conjures up the island in a polyphony of voices, textures and tales, to capture the plurality of its overlapping worlds.
One of the most talented contemporary voices in American cinema, street photographer Khalik Allah followed up his extraordinary debut, Field Niggas, with this dazzling and expansive story: A polyphonic portrait of Jamaica that weaves between portraiture and poetry, family history, and colonialism.
