‘Better Mus Come’ Will Be Huge

Better Mus’ Come is quite possibly the most significant Jamaican film since The Harder They Come. Consider the context. Global economic crisis, geopolitical realignment, political stagnation and a state of emergency. Jamaica 2010 you say? Yes, sadly. But also Jamaica 1977, the year in which the movie is set. The movie is a close examination of the lived experience of Jamaica’s underprivileged, especially the events surrounding the Green Bay Massacre. Given the recent assault on Tivoli, I hope it causes Jamaicans to consider many questions about where we are going and why we haven’t moved on.

Better Mus’ Come is directed by Storm Saulter and opens islandwide on October 13th.
