NO PLACE LIKE HOME d. Perry Henzell, 1975-2019 + Intro by The Twelve30 Collective at Rio Cinema (26 SEP 15:45) / Supported by #ReviveTheDark.

  • “A freewheeling road movie through 1970s Jamaica, NO PLACE LIKE HOME is Perry Henzell’s little-known follow-up to the classic THE HARDER THEY COME. Believed lost for over 25 years, the film was rediscovered and restored, and the definitive version is now being presented for the first time around the UK.”
  • This screening of NO PLACE LIKE HOME is being presented by The Twelve30 Collective, an independent film curating initiative dedicated to reframing Caribbean cinema for UK audiences.
  • This screening was made possible thanks to funding from RADIANT CIRCUS #ReviveTheDark. Revive The Dark is an audience-backed campaign for distinctive/DIY cinema.
