Ghett'A Life the Movie Ghett'A Life the Movie

Hit Jamaican film “GHETT'A LIFE” which played for over 10 unbroken weeks in Jamaica cinemas, will be released in the UK throughout August 2012 by New Independent Urban Film Distribution Company Nu-Urban Image International Pictures. The film will play in selected cinemas and community venues across the UK to join the numerous celebrations for Jamaica’s 50th Year Independence Anniversary on August 6th. Exclusive one-off screenings will start on Thursday 16th August at the Peckhamplex cinema in Peckham, South London and then move onto selected cinemas in London, Bristol, Birmingham, Nottingham and Leeds, with other venues to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

Associate produced by boxer Lennox Lewis the film follows Derrick, a young man growing up in the ghettos of Kingston, who dreams of being Jamaica’s next world boxing champion, but its election year and politics along with tribal violence divide the country. ‘Sin’, the local area “Don”, forbids him from going to the boxing gym which is situated in a rival part of town, but despite the escalating violence, Derrick refuses to give up on his dreams and defies both his father & Sin whilst facing up to past enemies from a rival gang also training at the same gym. Young Derrick stands tall even against violence meted out to his own parents until the ignorance of divisiveness gives way to the triumph of unity.

Writer and Director Chris Browne (Third World Cop) was extremely pleased to have secured a nationwide UK release for the film and said, "This is an important milestone for “Ghett'a Life” and for the Jamaican film industry, given that the film will be the first Jamaican-produced and financed movie to show across the UK. We look forward to widespread support from all communities as we promote the message of the film, 'unity in the community'."
