The Harder They Come (15) + Introduction at HOME

Creative Tourist

The Harder They Come (15) + Introduction at HOME Manchester, Manchester 20 July 2019 Tickets from £9.50 — Book now

Described as “Jamaica’s very first feature film”, The Harder They Come features reggae superstar Jimmy Cliff as Ivan, a renegade songwriter from the boondocks of Jamaica who comes to the big city looking for dreams and only finds reality. A cult classic with an astute take on politics and the dog eat dog nature of the entertainment industry, it’s very much an anti-tourism film fizzing with violence and energy. Cliff acts as well as he sings, also crafting the film’s exceptional soundtrack.

The 18:20 screening of The Harder they Come on on Sat 20 Jul will be introduced by Karen Gabay, radio presenter and producer.
