WAH DO DEM
In WAH DO DEM, young Brooklyn musician Max (Sean Bones) decides to go on a Caribbean cruise alone when his girlfriend Willow (Norah Jones) dumps him cold two days before the trip. Once in Jamaica, Max quickly escapes the tourist zone for more “authentic” surroundings and in the process is robbed of his possessions and is stranded, and literally misses the boat. As Max sets out for the American Embassy in Kingston on foot, Jamaica is waiting to meet him with unexpected and extraordinary encounters, including a full-moon celebration with the legendary reggae group The Congos, and a dreamy stay with a Rasta prophet (Carl Bradshaw, THE HARDER THEY COME).
S/S FRIENDS is a label based out of Cobble Hill, Brooklyn dedicated to runs of “seasonally specific” clothing items. Namely, swim trunks and knit hats. Run by a designer and a musician, the line is heavily informed by what’s on the stereo and will often see new collections paired with special music releases. Hello, soundtrack! After years of making clothes at home, the couple officially took their designs outside the house in 2008. They are indebted to friends, family and the clothes that aren’t being made.
