Fifty years later, The Harder They Come (#THTC50) has returned to where it all began: 10A West Kings House Road!

The historical venue — which was once the home of Perry Henzell, the 1972 film’s director and co-writer, and where scenes of the movie were filmed — was quite the rage last Saturday as Henzell’s daughter Justine lauded the iconic film, the actors, and the legendary soundtrack.

Specially invited guests enjoyed the nostalgic vibes created by DJ Rory from Stone Love as they meandered in and out of the three rooms that housed the 40-piece art exhibition. Come show time an all-star line-up of Jamaican artistes — hand-picked by Jimmy Cliff himself — delivered an impressive, medley-style rendition of the soundtrack’s title song The Harder They Come.
