the youth of jamaica

AND THEN THERE IS OUTDEH - A NEW MOVIE COMING IN 2020. OUTDEH is a documentary that portrays the Youth of Jamaica: a new generation in transition, determined to get out of old and set structures in society and culture – and to contribute with their mindset to a new understanding of the island.

By diving into the reality of the three protagonists Shama, Romar, and Bakersteez, the film offers us a deep insight into their daily struggle of searching their individual way out: Shama the first professional surfer of the island. Bakersteez is just starting a worldwide career as one of the uprising rappers creating and adding to a new Jamaican sound. The rough surrounding of Romar, born and raised in the Ghetto of Tivoli Garden, touches us deeply while we can share his dreams and thoughts about putting his first step out. 

OUTDEH makes us aware of a new movement on the island of Jamaica and generates respect and compassion for young people who follow their visions with courage and commitment.

The debut film of director Louis Amon Josek. Produced by Andreas Jaritz. At the first festival premiere, OUTDEH won gold at this year's Byron Bay International Film Festival and was awarded Best Music Documentary. Nominated also for Best Cinematography and Best Documentary.
