We’ve been talking about this movie for months and now my fellow New Yorkers can finally see Storm Saulter’s directorial debut – Better Mus’ Come.
ImageNation Cinema Foundation and the Film Society of Lincoln Center present the New York premiere of Better Mus’ Come on Thursday Feb. 16, at 7pm at Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater, hosted by WBLS radio personality Dahved Levy.
Passion, politics and poverty collide as this stunning love story unfolds against a backdrop of political turmoil. Set in 1970′s Jamaica, Better Mus’ Come is based on a violent moment in history when rival gangs were enlisted by warring political factions to disrupt the democratic process, and bloodshed was unleashed in the streets of Jamaica.
Better Mus’ Come begins in ’77 and ends the in the first couple days of ’78 during the Green Bay Massacre. This explosive film follows Ricky, a gang leader and political pawn, as he struggles to navigate the hardships of life in Kingston, and to define a better way of life for his young son.
