Fire Burn Babylon

Synopsis:  

An inquiry into the transformations of culture and place when a spiritually vivid past meets the intransigent reality of a Western city. Rastafarians Lyndon, I-Shaka and Elroy reinvent themselves as rude-boy rappers and small-time hustlers on the East End nightclub circuit. Will their dreams of celebrity be realized before the law catches up with them. There will be difficult choices to be made. Told through the eyes of the men themselves, the women who love them and the elders who guide them.
