The Moon Is Right Over My Head addresses Irish/Jamaican anti-colonial ties and the hidden histories of the Irish diaspora in Jamaica.
At the centre of the exhibition are three films. Better Must Come – A New Jamaica (2019) interrogates the impact of the enduring two-party political system and the resulting gang violence on contemporary Jamaica. A Beautiful Dream (2020) explores Ireland during 1920 and the escalation of the Irish War of Independence. A Riotous Assembly (2020) examines the 1938 workers strikes in Jamaica, a pivotal moment in the nation’s history.
