DIR Perry Henzell | Jamaica | 1972 | 103 min

Reggae superstar Jimmy Cliff is Ivan, a rural Jamaican musician who journeys to the city of Kingston in search of fame and fortune. Pushed to desperate circumstances by shady record producers and corrupt cops, he finally achieves notoriety—as a murderous outlaw. Boasting some of the greatest music ever produced in Jamaica, THE HARDER THEY COME brought the catchy and subversive rhythms of the Rastas to the U.S. in the early 1970s.
