Abstract

Under the direction of Martin Rennalls, the Jamaica Film Unit aimed to make educational films for, by and about Jamaicans. Drawing upon close analysis of selected films, an interview with Rennalls, and press reports in The Daily Gleaner, this essay shows how available sound technology challenged the Unit's goals during Jamaica's pre-independence years, 1951-1961.
