The Story of Lovers Rock is a feature length documentary that tells the story of a genre of reggae that was created in the UK. It was influential and very successful in the 70s and 80s and still lives on today. Along with the music came the dancing and fashion that created a unique brand of lifestyle. Inspired by female artists Lovers Rock was the first ‘girl power’ music in the UK at a time of heightened political tension and racial unrest.

Menelik Shabazz, (director of Burning An Illusion) charts the rise of Lover’s Rock, often dubbed ‘romantic reggae’. Through live performances from the leading exponents of the genre along with humorous reflections and interviews the film brings back to life the era when the music was at a highpoint. Lovers Rock gave a voice to many first generation black British young people but not exclusively. Along with the music came a unique fashion style and ‘scrubbing’ an intimate dance between male and female that defined the Lovers Rock brand.

The film consists of memorable live performances, interviews and light-hearted comedic memories that provides an untold portrait of the post Windrush generation. Artists include: Janet Kay, Carroll Thompson, UB40, Jean Adebambo, Maxi Priest, Michael Gordon, Sandra Cross. Also featured are comedians; Angie Le Mar, Eddie Nestor, Robbie Gee, Wayne Rollins & Glenda Jaxson.
