Last Street

Last Street

After the controversial extradition to the USA of the infamous druglord, Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke, chaos reigns in his former areas of control in West Kingston, Jamaica. Bands of teenagers kill each other for any little reason. Although violence in Jamaica is always portrayed as drug-related, ‘Last Street’ unveils a real truth which links a culture of violence to masculinity and shooting guns. Most of the young people from the ghetto don’t even know why they kill each other, but they are trapped in this cycle of violence. Former gangsters from Denham Town, Dudu´s previous stronghold, have become violence interrupters, a type of mediator, attempting to put an end to this nonsense situation.
