JAMDOWN takes you on a journey back to 1980, straight into the heart of the Jamaican reggae scene, following legendary Reggae artists Toots Hibbert and The Congos. The film was shot in 1980 had a limited release in France and therefore remained undiscovered by the rest of the world. Since it's initial release over 30 years ago 'Jamdown' has become what reggae footage collectors often refer to as "The holy grail of reggae films" due to it's rarity and difficulty in finding an original copy. For the first time this film has now been made available to own on dvd. It contains some of the only known early footage of The Congos, performing tracks from their legendary Heart Of The Congo's LP which was produced by Lee Perry at the Black Ark at the height of their career.

Jamdown contains some of the most electrifying live reggae footage to have ever been captured on film !
