I was recently sent a link to a podcast by Middle Aged Black Man about the Jamaican Film The Harder They Come. This film is sited as the single most powerful representative film of the Jamaican demographic of the time.
Now the debate surrounding this film continues, however, as I have never visited Jamaica, I could not comment on its authentic representation of the culture or people. That said the film got me thinking about the films that represent the 260* countries in the world.
Which film would you say best represents your country of origin?
Therefore, regardless of where you are from, nationality or race, let us know which film would you suggest best represents your country of origin?
As and when the FP Comms team receive your thoughts, comments and suggestion we will compile the global list of films and Who knows, we may even screen some of them at RENAISSANCE RELEASES – FILMS
