The Hanging Out Team would like to bring your attention to the film One Love, soon to be released on iTunes, produced by Yvonne Deutschman: co-directer of the Hanging Out Documentary.

To mark the 50th Anniversary of Jamaica’s independence, One Love, directed by Rick Elgood and Don Letts (The Clash, Dancehall Queen), starring Ky-mani Marley (Shottas), Cherine Anderson (Dancehall Queen) and Idris Elba (Prometheus, The Wire) will be available online for the first time in the UK & Ireland. Filmed entirely on location in Jamaica, One Love tells the powerful story of forbidden love between a Rastafarian songwriter (Marley) and a young Christian gospel singer (Anderson) that incurs the jealousy and revenge of her fiancé (Elba).

One Love's universal appeal lies with the film’s underlying theme of ‘the power of love and music to overcome religious and cultural differences’. The visually stunning locations capture the breathtaking landscape of rural Jamaica with a delightful, uplifting script by the late legendary Jamaican writer Trevor D Rhone (The Harder They Come). The film is blessed with a fabulous soundtrack which blends traditional and contemporary reggae tracks from artists like Bob Marley, Shaggy, Sean Paul, Sizzla & Morgan Heritage. It won four international film festival awards for “Best Film Audience Award”, “Best Actress”, “Best Soundtrack” and “Film of the Year”.

Since making the film, the lead actors have grown to achieve global popularity:
Idris Elba boasts a huge fanbase from playing the role of Stringer Bell in the popular acclaimed HBO TV series The Wire. His A-list status has him averaging 5 films a year, most recently Prometheus.
Ky-mani Marley has risen out of the shadows of being Bob Marley’s son to become a hugely popular singing icon in his own right within the reggae/hip hop scene, currently working on his sixth album.
Cherine Anderson, dubbed The Dancehall Reggae Diva, has collaborated with the likes of Madonna, Britney Spears, Wyclef Jean, Michael Fanti, Sly and Robbie. Her song Coming Over rose to #1 on the Jamaican charts for 30 weeks.
