“A Natural History 5 Sequence 2” is a series of short video animations that presents a contemporary perspective on Jamaican culture and its diaspora. Oneika Russell, a young Jamaican artist, draws from art history and literature to create digital animations rooted in Jamaica’s colonial past and pop culture.

With a significant amount of its actors being real life popular reggae artists, “Rockers” is a Jamaican film, that along with “The Harder They Come” (1972), introduced reggae music to the world. The movie tells the story of Leroy “Horsemouth” Wallace, a drummer living in a ghetto of Kingston, who decides to make extra money by selling and distributing records to help his fellow musicians, but is confronted by local gangsters.
