Bad Like Brooklyn Dancehall (2023) Tribeca 2023

A look at the history of  dancehall, the music style that has roots in reggae, links to hip hop and other styles. Its told by the people who created it and danced to it.

This film filled in a blind spot for me. While I was familiar with a bunch of the music we hear in this film I didn't know what it was called. I had no idea about any of the details of the story and I sat there wide eyed like a little kid as I learned new thing after new thing. 

I had a great time watching this film and it was a joy not to be the only one in the audience bouncing to the beats of the music.
