Looking out over the lush green mountains of Kingston, Peter Webber’s vibrant documentary captures a remarkable group of reggae legends (including Ken Boothe, Winston McAnuff, Kiddus I, Cedric Myton and Judy Mowatt) as they gather to record an album of hits in an unplugged style that harks back to their roots.

The film is studded with intimate acoustic versions of popular anthems (such as Ken Boothe's Everything I Own), remarkable personal histories and powerful live performances.

Buena Vista Social Club for reggae, this landmark film recounts the history of reggae music and its continuing relevance, conjuring an unforgettable portrait of pioneering musicians as they share stories of success, heartaches and happiness during a lifetime immersed in the scene.

Everyone attending on the evening will be able to visit our summer exhibition Get Up, Stand Up Now – which features numerous artists of Jamaican origin – for free from 19.00 to 20.30, courtesy of the Jamaica Tourist Board.

Aisha Zoe (Balamii) will set the mood with a live DJ set from 19.00.

Inna de Yard is released in UK cinemas Friday 30 August by Picturehouse Entertainment.

This film contains a sequence of flashing lights which might affect customers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.

"A warm, engaging love letter to the veteran talents who shaped a sound, the film has an infectious groove"
