Babylon

Double Feature with THE HARDER THEY COME (5:00, 9:30)

1980 • dir Franco Rosso w/Brinsley Forde, Trevor Laird • 95 min • DCP

Franco Rosso’s incendiary BABYLON had its world premiere at Cannes in 1980 but went unreleased in the U.S. for being too controversial – until now. Raw and smoldering, it follows a young dancehall DJ (Forde) in South London as he pursues his musical ambitions, battling against the racism and xenophobia of employers, neighbors, police, and the National Front.
