Outdoor Cinema: Dancehall Queen

Rags to riches fairytale set in the phantasmagorical world of Jamaican dancehall

Trinity brings together two weekends with double bills of classic films, food and music over two nights:

Partnering with Come the Revolution, we kick off with Dancehall Queen*:

Rags to riches fairytale set in the phantasmagorical world of Jamaican dancehall featuring some fab tunes and eye popping dancing.

Street vendor Marcia is scraping together a living in the ghetto section of Kingston, Jamaica. Her young daughter is being hounded by a rich sugar daddy who has been supporting the family; her brother's life is being threatened by a local thug. So, when the licentious patron threatens to abandon the family, and her brother breaks down under pressure, Marcia hits bottom. She needs to escape to a haven where she can get lost in fantasy; Marcia, don in sex-me-up clothing and outrageous glamour, finds refuge in the beats of the very dance hall outside of which she normally vends.

Wet weather plan: We're obviously encouraging the warm summer evenings to continue in to September - if we do get adverse wether however, don't fear. We can move all the action indoors. Fingures crossed it stays dry and bright.
