Lover's Rock is a romantic, vocal-led reggae that is uniquely a black British sound, developed in the late 1970s and 1980s against a backdrop of riots and racial tension. Directed by Menelik Shabazz, the documentary is a look at black youth culture of that time with interviews of black musicians and comedians.
