Life’s key elements come together in this visual film symphony and ode to today's colourful Jamaica.
Life’s key elements come together in the colourful Jamaica portrayed by Khalik Allah. In this polyphonic film symphony, every inhabitant views their island paradise differently, be they prostitutes, graybeards, rappers, Rastafarians or pregnant women.
IFFR and World Press Photo invited Khalik Allah to give a talk at IFFR 2019. Afterwards, we got a moment to ourselves to talk of his approach, and his film Black Mother, in which life’s key elements come together as a visual film symphony and ode to today's colourful Jamaica.
