What a way to kick off October folks, Better Mus’ Come has won the People’s Choice Award for Best Feature Film at the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival.
Better Mus’ Come was produced by award-winning filmmaker Paul Bucknor (The Full Monty), and is the debut film of writer/director Storm Saulter. The film has a sizzling original score and all Jamaican lead cast, with an electrifying cameo appearance by Roger Guenveur Smith (Malcolm X, Do the Right Thing, American Gangster) as Prime Minister, delivering the political speech that ended with the promise, Better Mus Come, reflecting his party’s commitment to greater social justice and equality for all Jamaicans.
Better Mus’ Come is a coming of age drama set in Jamaica’s turbulent 1970s, against the backdrop of the Cold War, a national water crisis, an energy crisis, corruption, and numerous murder scandals that gave birth to the polarized violence gripping the streets of Kingston both then and now.
