SIGN ‘O’ THE TIMES
1987, 85 min, Dir: Prince, Albert Magnoli

Prince’s lofty reputation as a live performer is easily justified by this incendiary concert film, shot while on tour to promote his then-new “Sign o' the Times.” With dramatically staged vignettes linking the songs, the Purple One roars through the bulk of the critically acclaimed double album, fronting a sizzling post-Revolution band including drummer Sheila E.


NO PLACE LIKE HOME
2006, IFM, 95 min, USA/Jamaica, Dir: Perry Henzell

Following the success of THE HARDER THEY COME, Perry Henzell directed part two of his Jamaican trilogy, which follows New York producer Susan as she ventures into the Jamaican countryside (reversing the country-to-city trajectory of the first film) in search of a runaway actress. After working on the film throughout the 1970s, Henzell discovered that the footage had been lost; fortunately, it was found 30 years later, and now Henzell's follow-up to his breakthrough classic can be seen on the big screen! With music by Bob Marley & The Wailers, Toots & The Maytals and Peter Tosh and introducing Grace Jones and P.J. Soles.
