Charjan from Charjanfilms making real reggae sound system film

We are in the process of making the reggae sound system film called Real Sounds. We are looking for actors and actresses to be a part of the project, filming starts August 2013.

My brothers and sisters let us tell our own story of the life we lived in England between the sixties and now. Many people will record our history but only we have the true facts so have no fear of those who come to exploit our history.
