Aswad’s Brinsley Forde plays the lead in this tale of racism, police violence and sound system culture in South London. Blue is a young Rastafari, a mechanic by day, by night he’s a musician with dreams of winning a Soundsystem competition, all while navigating the hardships black Britons endured in the latter half of the 20th century. A killer soundtrack by Dennis Bovell is one of the many things to love about this essential piece of 1980s cinema.
