About the Event
A freewheeling road movie through 1970s Jamaica, this is Perry Henzell’s little-known follow-up to the classic The Harder They Come. Believed lost for over 25 years, the film was rediscovered and restored, and the definitive version is now being presented for the first time in the UK. Starring The Harder They Come’s Carl Bradshaw and introducing Grace Jones, the memorable No Place Like Home boasts a soundtrack including Bob Marley, Etta James and Toots and the Maytals. The film is both a sun-kissed love letter to Jamaica and a thoughtful examination of it.
