A recently restored, unique contemporary document from the early Thatcher era: BABYLON tells the story of David (played by Brinsley Forde, guitarist of the reggae band Asward), who works as a car mechanic in southwest London and organizes parties at night as part of a dub sound system. Because of the colour of his skin, he is subjected to constant discrimination and police brutality. A film filled with anger and passion, the missing link between THE HARDER THEY COME and Steve McQueen’s LOVERS ROCK. With a soundtrack by legendary producer Dennis Bovell.
