Legendary voices of Reggae flow from the yard of the house full of old vinyl records, perched on the slopes above Kingston, Jamaica. The voices of Ken Boothe, Winston McAnuff, Kiddus I, and Cedric Myton, the famous lead of The Congos, to name but a few. They’ve sung with Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Jimmy Cliff in the back rooms of the ghettos. For the project of Inna de Yard, they reunited to revisit their biggest hits and record a unique acoustic album. For this occasion, they’ll share the mic with new generation singers of reggae. <Inna de Yard - The Soul of Jamaica> is a film by Peter Webber, renowned for <Hannibal Rising> (2007) and <Girl with a Pearl Earring>(2003), which drew attention for its music documentary form. The film could be labeled as the best music documentary since <Buena Vista Social Club>(1999), as the stylish music of the legendary Reggae musicians and their moving stories unfold alongside the beautiful landscape of Jamaica.
Born in 1968, Peter Webber made his first film <The Zebra Man> (1992) in film school and worked as a film editor. Since then, he created documentary films of diverse themes, produced soap operas such as [Men Only] and [The Stretford Wives] and narrative films such as <Girl with a Pearl Earring> (2003) and <Emperor> (2012).
