‘Sprinter’, the movie doing away with stereotypes about Jamaicans

It will be released in the United Kingdom, next month.
'Sprinter' is a movie which strives to debunk the stereotypical storylines of guns and gangsters, commonly used to describe Jamaica. It’s about the story of Akeem Sharp, a young Rastafarian running for his family and his future. The film is about to hit the silver screen here in the United Kingdom, next month. BBC Newsday caught up with Hollywood-based Jamaican producer Rob Maylor and the film's director Storm Saulter to chat about their work.
