Storyline:

Jamaica continues to be on top of the worldwide music scene, as Reggae has evolved into a new genre, Dancehall. Anywhere, at any time, tunes created by artists from the ghetto tell the story of a society whose reality is marked by violence and poverty. This documentary introduces us to Yellowman, an albino who was abandoned at birth, but whose passion, sense of humor and talent converted him into the Reggae artist that sold most records, second to Bob Marley. After being diagnosed with cancer in 1985 Yellowman still tours and records 25 years later, with more than 40 records released.

This film is screening as part of the Visionare Cinema Experience
