A British Cult Classic....While hoping to win a Sound System competition, Blue (Brinsley Forde) looks to fight against the struggles he faces as a Black man in 1980s Britain. Set against the backdrop of a newly-installed Thatcher government, the end of punk and the rise of mod and ska, and featuring a raucous reggae soundtrack, Babylon is a potent mix of music and social realism.
Screenwriter Martin Stellman (Quadrophenia) and director Franco Rosso (Dread, Beat and Blood) present an uncompromising look at urban survival on the streets of South London, expertly shot by celebrated cinematographer Chris Menges (The Killing Fields).
