Indy Slacker Lost in Translation Wah Do Dem gets a UK release date

Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Friday, August 13, 2010

Network releasing is bringing the charming slacker oddessy Wah Do Dem (Patois for “What’s Wrong With Them”) to the UK. I have seen Wah Do Dem and this fresh indy is the flipside of the coin of Lost in Translation and it will charm you as it takes you across Jamaica.

In WAH DO DEM, young Brooklyn-based musician Max (Sean Bones) wins tickets to go on a Caribbean cruise. At the last minute, he is dumped by his girlfriend (Norah Jones). He goes on the cruise alone anyway. Once in Jamaica, Max quickly escapes the tourist zones for more “authentic” surroundings and in the process, he falls victim to a robbery and loses all his possessions including his passport and is stranded- and literally misses the boat. As Max sets out for the American Embassy in Kingston on foot, Jamaica is waiting to greet him with unexpected and extraordinary encounters and adventures, including a full-moon celebration with the legendary reggae group The Congos, and a dreamy stay with a Rasta prophet- an inspired and eerie performance from Carl Bradshaw (The Harder They Come).

Part of the Official Selection for the London Film Festival, winner of Best Film at the LA Film Festival, Best Feature Film at the Reggae Film Festival and winner of Best Film at the Spokanne Film Festival, Network Releasing is delighted to announce the UK cinema release of slacker road movie “WAH DO DEM” on 27th August 2010 at selected cinemas across the UK including Ritzy Brixton, Picturehouse Greenwich, Cameo Edinburgh, Picturehouse at FACT Liverpool and Duke of York’s Picturehouse Brighton.

Starring Sean Bones, Norah Jones, Carl Bradshaw and Kevin Bewersdorf the film also features a sublime Indie and reggae centric soundtrack from MGMT, Yeasayer, Santigold, Mykal Rose, Mr Lexx, Sean Bones and The Congos.

Director: Ben Chace & Sam Fleischner
Kevin Bewersdorf, Sean Bones, Carl Bradshaw, Mark Gibbs, Norah Jones
