Words by Natalie Weiner—

Better Mus Come

Jamaican film Better Mus’ Come has garnered international attention for its unflinching portrayal of politically-driven gang violence in 1970s-era Kingston. Directed by Storm Saulter, it has won a number of different awards, including Best Feature at the Trinidad & Tobago and Bahamas International film festivals; Best Director at the Pan-African Film Festival; and Best Actor at the American Black Film Festival. Other Caribbean filmmakers, like Trinidad’s Damian Marcano, have followed in Saulter’s footsteps, using contemporary film to shed light on more little known (at least to international audiences) aspects of local Caribbean culture.

Easily one of the most influential rock bands of the last decade, 2011 Grammy Album of the Year winners Arcade Fire have turned to the Caribbean for inspiration on their latest release. The band, which includes Haitian-Canadian vocalist Regine Chassagne, spent time in both Jamaica and Haiti during the making of their new LP, Reflektor. Tracks such as “Flashbulb Eyes” and “Here Comes the Night Time” bear traces of reggae and Haitian rara: the latter was inspired by the plight of Haitian refugees, according to frontman Win Butler.
