This Black History Month Celebration will kick off with a live reggae performance and close with a director Q & A and discussion on the history of reggae music and its global influence.

ImageNation Cinema Foundation and the Film Society at Lincoln Center present the New York premiere of Rise Up, a journey into the heart of Jamaica, where talent abounds and opportunity is scarce. Three distinct and courageous artists fight to rise up from obscurity and write themselves into the pages of history. With music and appearances by legends Lee “Scratch” Perry, Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare, and a slew of soon-to-be superstars, including Turbulence, RiseUp follows artists in the streets, back alleys and crowded dancehalls of the cities as well as the countryside. These artists demonstrate the raw power of hope and courage in a land which is largely unseen, but certainly not unsung.
