Win Bashment DVD from Ariztical Entertainment

Win Bashment DVD from Ariztical Entertainment! To enter the contest, fill out the form at http://www.eriegaynews.com/news/article.php?recordid=201309bashment&sourceid=2 from August 20 through September 10.

Bashment (noun): a type of reggae dancehall music. 

“It’s difficult not to be completely glued to the screen…engrossing and challenging”

– James Waygood, sosogay.co.uk

 “What starts as a visceral, pounding story eases into a nuanced contemplation of masculinity and what lengths we’ll go to in order to protect others-and ourselves.”

– Trista Kendall, Frameline Film Festival  

JJ (Joel Dommett, MTV UK, Skins UK), an aspiring MC, is on the cusp of wowing the crowds and winning the Urban Slam finals with his lyrical prowess. However there’s a problem – he’s white, from the countryside, and gay – three things that don’t mix well in London’s outlaw urban music scene. After outing himself on stage and angering his rivals, the Illford Illmaniacs, they savagely beat his boyfriend Orlando into a state of permanent brain damage. With their lives changed forever, adversity forces all of them to tackle their own perceptions of sexuality, race, and class in ways they never could have imagined.
