Combining archive footage, interview and drama RUDEBOY chronicles the story of Trojan Records - one the most iconic record labels in history - as part of the cultural revolution that unfolded on the dancefloors of late ‘60s and early ‘70s Britain. Featuring legendary reggae and ska artists Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Neville Staple, Marcia Griffiths, Dandy Livingstone, Lloyd Coxsone, and Pauline Black, the film shows how that period of immigration and innovation transformed popular culture.

Director Nicolas Jack Davies (UK) is a passionate storyteller who won a Grammy Award in 2014 for Best Music Film with THE ROAD TO RED ROCKS. He adapted his Channel Four documentary PAYDAY to an award-winning series for Viceland.
