Gangsta chic, violence and nihilism, the hard edge of rap and reggae increasingly dominates the image of black popular culture. This film investigates the issues raised by the genre, such as ritualized machismo, misogyny, attitudes towards homosexuality and religion, and gun glorification. Filmed in dance halls, hip hop clubs, and using interviews and music video clips, film takes us to London, Jamaica and the U.S....

Greetings videolibbers,

I'm having trouble identifying a documentary that a faculty member is looking for.  According to her, it is a film about reggae, sexuality and black politics in transnational space of New York and the Caribbean. And apparently Paul Gilroy was involved in the film, but I have no idea to what extent. Does this ring any kind of bell with anyone? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Susanna.
