This Sunday will feature writer/director Dickie Jobson's 1982 film, Countryman. It's about a woman who crashes her plane in Jamaica and the man who not only rescues her from the wreckage, but from a political coup involving local authorities and the drug trade. Music from Steel Pulse & the Toots, Bob Marley, and others make up the film's classic reggae soundtrack.
Roti is the term for Caribbean fast food and, in addition to the movie, the price of admission includes dinner by Marla's Caribbean Cuisine.
Tickets for Roti and a Reel are $20 and include movie admission and dinner; vegetarian options are available. Showtime is 5 p.m. at the Suburban World Theater (3022 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis). Purchase tickets online, or by calling the theater at 952.270.6700. Visit Caribbean Cultural Development of Minnesota for more information on upcoming music, dancing, poetry, and cooking events.
