Klash (1995)












































Starring:
Stoney (Giancarlo Esposito), a world-weary photographer past his prime, comes to Kingston to photograph the Klash, an electrifying battle of the world's best Reggae and Dancehall performers. He believes this is to be a routine assignment but soon finds himself under the spell of Blosson (Jasmin Guy), the steamy goddess of the dancehalls and the "property" of underworld Kingpin Mr. Lee. Unhappy in her life as a gun moll, she sees Stoney as her ticket out.

Blossom has devised a seamless plan to steal the box-office receipts generated by the Klash —if Mr. Lee and his double-crossing thugs don't beat her to it! There is apparently no honor amongst thieves, and with the police, led by Lieutenant Loveless (Cedella Marley), quickly closing in, the stakes become dizzyingly high in this race for money, power, and freedom.
