image002Why Do Jamaicans Run So Fast, the one-hour documentary film by Jamaican/Spanish film and music company Nice Time Productions, has won a major international award.

Producer Fernando Garcia-Guereta and director Miguel Galofre received the Garland of Honour in the category of “Olympic Spirit” at the Sport Movies & Tv 2009 – 27th Milano International FICTS Festival on November 4 in Italy.

‘Why Do Jamaicans Run So Fast’ is Garcia-Guereta’s first film production. He knew something ‘big’ was going to happen at last summer’s Beijing Olympics. Garcia-Guereta therefore captured the reactions and emotions of his adopted country – Jamaica – as it witnessed history.

The documentary also contains interviews with athletes and gold-medal winners such as Usain Bolt, Shelly Anne Fraser, and Melanie Walker at home in Jamaica. The natural environment oriented images of the film are reinforced and supported with classic and new reggae songs, partly produced by Nice Time Productions music division, which makes the documentary film a work of significant historical value.

The film premiered in February 2009 at the CPTC in Jamaica as part of the Reggae Film Festival, and was selected as the opening night feature of the Kingston On The Edge arts week. The Jamaican production was also nominated in the best documentary category at the American Black Film Festival held in Miami, USA June 2009.

Nice Time Productions is currently working on their second documentary “Hit Me With Music”. This film captures all ingredients of reggae and dancehall culture in Jamaica, again illustrated with leading Jamaicans commenting on this popular topic and supported by old and new recordings as the appropriate backdrop.

Who Killed Bob Marley? The true story.

This is the latest release from Walter Bidén Productions. Who Killed Bob Marley – is an animated documentary that compile conspiracy theories, rumours and facts about the death of reggae legend Bob Marley. All is presented by the presumably (at least in his own consideration) world renowned music journalist and movie maker Walter Bidén. “This is a 9-year-project finally afloat”, says animator/director Patrik Agemalm. We’ve put so much love and effort into the Walter character that he actually came alive”. “We came up with the idea for the movie after seeing Kurt & Courtney by Nick Broomfield”, says writer/voice artist Fredrik Lindgårdh. “It was just hilarious that Nick was more on camera than his supposed suspects – we just had to do something with that”.

The final result is of course a collective effort – considering all the years gone by. Patrik Agemalm (Director/animator), Fredrik Lindgårdh (Writer/Voice Artist), Calle Nathansson (writer), Anders Eriksson (writer), Mats Jernudd (executive producer), Erik Holmberg (soundtrack).
