Q&A with director Molly Dineen and protagonists Blacker Dread and Naptali, hosted by Eloise King, executive Producer at VICE, i-D.

After a ten-year absence, acclaimed filmmaker Molly Dineen is back with an intimate portrait of Jamaican-born reggae producer, businessman, father, son, and community pillar, Blacker Dread.

40 years after featuring in Dineen’s first film, Blacker invites her to film his mother’s funeral, opening the door to his life at a time of great personal crisis. As the story unfolds, he reflects on the issues that have dogged his last 40 years here in the UK; inequality, poverty, crime, and racism, and why he sent his youngest child back to school in Jamaica.
